(MURFREESBORO)  Rewards increased to $26,000 for information about the person who shot a Murfreesboro business woman driving her Tesla April 23, 2020 on Veterans Parkway, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s detective said.

She remains bedridden while recovering from her critical injuries, said Detective Jamin Humphress.


Detective Humphries said, “The victim and the family desperately want justice and prosecution of the person who shot her and critically injured her.” 

She was driving about 11:15 a.m. near Kingdom Drive between Franklin Road and New Salem Highway when someone fired into her car. Detectives believe she was shot by another driver.

The detective noted, “We do not believe this to be an incident of road rage.” 

Occupants of a white truck may have crucial details about the shooting.

Humphries commented, “We believe this vehicle may have been in the immediate area at the time of the shooting and we would greatly like to identify the occupants and talk with them about what they may have seen.”

Detectives do not have any leads at this time. They are asking people to notify them of any information that might be related to the shooting.
