Residents shaken by Bolivar shooting

Jordan Hall

BOLIVAR, Tenn. -- East Jefferson Street residents are still shaken about a Friday night shooting in Bolivar that sent a m an to the hospital.

Police still don't know who pulled the trigger, worrying residents with children about their family's safety.

"I have kids. I'm worried about my two kids, so I hope they catch the boy, whoever shot this man for no reason," Mary Morrow explained.

Family didn't want to speak about the incident but said the bullet came from a side street. They say the victim, however, is in stable condition and is expected back home before the weekend is over.

Police are searching for a white Dodge Stratus that four people were inside of when a bullet came from the vehicle and shot through the man's chest.

Resident Betty Crowder said the violence has gone too far.

"Young people need to put the guns down, stop the violence, stop the shooting and the killing," Crowder said.

Police are advising people in the area to be aware of their surroundings.

Anyone with information is asked to call Bolivar Police Department.
