MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A construction worker doing repairs on a Memphis church was shot during a robbery Monday.

The shooting happened around 12 p.m. at Wholeness Church of God and Christ, which is located in the 1700 block of Winchester Road.

Memphis Police Department said the worker was alone inside the church when the shooting happened. He was making repairs to the building, so the church could sell the property.

A witness who heard the gunshot said she also saw two men running from the church building.

"They was young. They was young. They should have been in school," Terra Smith said.

The victim was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

No arrests have been made.
