Woman manages to call 911 after she’s shot lying in her own bed

JACKSONVILLE, Fla – A woman lying in bed at her Westside apartment complex was struck by a bullet that shattered her window just before midnight Sunday, police said.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening, and she was able to reach a phone to call 911 for help.

A neighbor at the Madelyn Oaks Apartments said she was shocked by the violence.

“The neighborhood is pretty decent. I honestly have had no issues, but it’s crazy. It’s a crazy thing to have to hear. Sometimes you have to be aware of what’s going on,” Lexus Marshall said. “I give her that. She rolled over and called 911; she just didn’t lie there.”

The woman was taken to a hospital, and her condition was not known Monday morning. Police said it’s unclear if this was a random shooting or if the woman was a target.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You could receive a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest.
