No injuries in second shooting

Suspect still sought in shooting of barber shop victim

No one was injured during an exchange of gunfire Thursday afternoon at an apartment complex on Riviera Street, Murfreesboro Police reported Monday.

Victim Cory Mitchell, 24, of La Vergne reported two men, attempting to kill him, shot at the apartment he visited about 1:30 p.m. off Bradyville Pike, Officer Ron McGee reported. The motive was not disclosed.

One of the men, known as "Lucky," had a scar on the right side of his face from the forehead to the jaw line. No description was given of the second man.

One man fired a black revolver from a distance of about 15 to 20 feet away and a second man fired from a tree line north of the apartment.

"Mitchell stated he returned fire," McGee said.

Seven .45-caliber shell casings were found about 15 feet from the apartment.

Police converged on the area but the suspects fled.

About one hour later, victim Daryl Frame, 19, of Smyrna suffered critical injuries in an exchange of gunfire after a robbery on State Street off Southeast Broad Street. Frame remains hospitalized at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police are still searching for the suspect.

Police said the two shootings were not related.
