A University of Tennessee at Chattanooga student was shot during a party at his home. Police say two men were hiding in his shed when bullets rang out in the back yard.
19-year-old Kyle Worley hosted a private concert at his home for all of his friends. "A bunch of bands came out and played that had been on tour." But, that tour ended with an encore performance that no one was expecting.
Around 2:30 A.M., Worley says he was cleaning up in the backyard and looking for one of his roommates, but what he found was trouble. "No one was out here, but I heard some noise going on in the shed so I thought maybe that it was one of them. I wasn't even thinking anything along the lines of there being an intruder. It was loud at the house. There's no reason anyone should've been trying to break-in at that moment."
But, Worley was wrong. After hearing rustling in the shed, two shots rang out one missing him, but the other striking him in the shoulder. "He just popped out and let two shots go off and ran as fast as he could," says Worley.
While it was dark outside, Worley saw two men run out of the shed. But, the 19-year-old feared that there could be more shooters. With one gunshot wound to the shoulder, he stumbled to the basement door. "I was trying to get my head completely out of sight. I was peaking up because I thought at any moment if I see those guys coming around the corner, there's nothing I can do right now."
Luckily those shooters were gone for good. But why they were hiding inside the shed in the first place is still a mystery.
