MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis police need help identifying the suspects responsible for injuring a 27-year-old pregnant woman during a shooting in the 800 block of Pope Street.

During the shooting, which happened Friday, Jan. 30, the woman was inside the home on Pope Street with her boyfriend when someone shot through the window.

Neighbors say they heard nearly a dozen gun shots right before the woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The woman, who is 18-weeks pregnant, has been treated and released from the hospital, but her shooters are still at large.

"What we really need is folks to tell us who the folks are that are doing this stuff," said Crime Stoppers executive Buddy Chapman.

Chapman says that he's ready to make a payout about information that leads to an arrest, but so far few leads have come in.

Neighbors declined to talk to WMC Action News 5, and several added that they feared talking to the media might make them a target.

"The community simply has to take note of this," said Chapman. "I know people are afraid. They don't want to become victims. They don't want to be involved, but without that involvement we will never address this thing."

Police are searching for a man, who was wearing a red t-shirt with faded jeans, and a woman, who was wearing a light blue shirt and a black long-sleeve cardigan sweater. They were driving a black Kia Optima and a white GMC Yukon.

Detectives released surveillance photos of the woman and the vehicles. [NOTE: MPD has since said the woman in surveillance photos is not a suspect in the case] They're still investigating a possible motive for the shooting.
