Memphis, Tennessee

From the October 31, 2007 Memphis Commercial-Appeal:

Memphis police early today were waiting for a suspect to be released from the hospital so they could charge him in a string of events in East Memphis that involved a crash, an attempted break-in, a shooting and smashed windows.

At about 3:30 the suspect crashed his vehicle into a pole on the 6500 block of Poplar Pike, then went to the nearby residence of an elderly couple.

He started banging on the door, demanding to be let in. When the 83-year-old man inside refused, the suspect kicked in a window.

The elderly man fired a shot at the suspect, which set him off running, police said. He was not struck.
