Police investigating after shots fired at woman’s car on I-240

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are investigating after a woman’s car was shot on the interstate.

Officers responded to an aggravated assault complaint at the Lamar Qwik Stop in the 2300 block of Lamar Avenue.

According to police, a woman was traveling westbound in I-240 from Getwell Road approaching Lamar Avenue.

A maroon Ford expedition, possibly a 1999 or 2000 model year with drive-out tags was in the far right lane traveling directly next to the woman.

The Expedition swerved in front of the woman’s car due to the far right lane being closed for construction.

The Expedition almost hit the woman’s car, a Chevy Malibu.

The woman blew her horn and the Expedition began to slow down in front of her.

The victim began to pass the Expedition on the driver’s side.

According to police, the victim heard five gunshots. One bullet struck the rear passenger side of her car and one struck her passenger side window, exiting the front driver side window and striking the driver side mirror.

The woman exited I-240 on Airways Boulevard and saw the Expedition traveling behind her.

As the victim began to pass the Truitt Airways Precinct, the Expedition turned around and began traveling southbound on Airways Boulevard.

The victim parked at the Qwik Stop due to a flat rear passenger tire.

The victim’s car was leaking gas into the parking lot, according to police.

The woman told police she believes the gunshots came from a rear passenger inside the Expedition.

No suspect information is available at this time.
