MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A gunshot victim showed up to a South Memphis church Saturday afternoon.

A man with a gunshot wound was found outside New Covenant Seventh Day Adventist Church on Horn Lake Road, police said.

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

Witnesses said there were children inside the church at the time.

Terrance Blunt was at home with his mom, waiting to pick up his four younger siblings from the church when the incident happened.

“She said she had just pulled out of the apartment and someone over at the church had been shot,” Blunt said. “We went over to see what was going on because we know my four other little siblings were over there we wanted to check on them. But there were like six police cars we didn’t want to get in their way so we just waited."

It’s unclear exactly where the shooting took place. No one else was injured during the ordeal.

“I’m just glad they’re safe and nobody got hurt. I still want to know what happened because that was close to our house and they’re over there all the time,” Blunt said.

There is no word on a possible suspect at this time.
