Death of a 22-year-old under homicide investigation

(WMC-TV) - Police discovered 22-year-old Mary Hall shot dead by an unknown man last night near Lamar and Clearpool.  

Witnesses said a man reportedly chased her across a parking lot and then shot her.

An anonymous neighbor said he heard sirens and saw flashing lights, but it was his neighbor's dog that convinced him perhaps the shooter was hiding near an abandoned house.

"Someone went in that area. That dog was in that corner aggressively letting his owner and I know that someone was there," he said.

The neighbor said police searched the area this morning as well as The Shadowbrook Apartments next to the crime scene.

If you can help police find the killer, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
