Exotic dancer shot after leaving work

Overnight, Memphis police say a gunman followed a woman as she was leaving work...forced her off the road-- and then shot her.

Police say it all started late last night when two dancers from Christie's Cabaret left work. Investigators say a car followed the women out of the parking lot... began to chase them... And eventually tried to run them off the road. The women tried to pull into a nearby gas station on Winchester and South Mendenhall when shots were fired. The gunman shot one woman in the head-- almost sending her truck into a gas pump. That woman is in stable condition this morning. The gunman got away.

Police are still trying to figure out what prompted the incident.
