The Murfreesboro Police Department (MPD) Criminal Investigations Division (CID) detectives are investigating a shooting where a man was shot multiple times in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Sunday Sept. 25.

The incident occurred in the parking lot of the Hawthorne South Apartments on Indian Park Dr. at 3:15 p.m.

The preliminary investigation shows a man with a gun approached a car in the parking lot and a man inside a white Chrysler 200 fired several times, striking the man standing outside multiple times. He was taken to the hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

The exterior of two nearby apartments were struck by bullets. No one else was injured.

Investigators are working to determine a motive. They believe this is an isolated incident and the men may have known each other. Right now, there is no immediate threat to the public.

Detectives would like to interview the driver of the Civic to get his version of what happened. Detectives also want to speak to a male teenager who was in the parking during the shooting. The two men are asked to contact Lieutenant James Abbott at 629-201-5523.

The shooting remains under investigation.
