MEMPHIS, Tenn. Jan 13 2017—Police were called to an apartment where a security officer was shot during a confrontation with a suspicious person.
Police are investigating the shooting that occurred at the Bella Vista Apartments on Knight Arnold Road.
According to a police report, two security guards were checking the complex's parking lot when they noticed a man sitting in a Dodge. He was reportedly smoking marijuana.
As the security officers were trying to get the man out of the car, the driver --later identified as Andrew Davis -- put the car in reverse, backed up and then pulled away from the scene. A gunshot was fired, resulting in the second officer pulling his gun and firing.
One security officer was shot and the second injured.
The driver crashed the car into other parked vehicles before jumping out of the car and taking off on foot.

That security officer was rushed to the hospital, but is expected to be okay.
