McMinn County Investigating Shooting & Home Invasion
Sheriff Joe Guy says his deputies responded to the home on County road 700 around 2 AM Friday morning.
Michelle Blair told them that she was asleep on her couch when a man in a dark hoodie entered her home and began beating her.
She says she heard a gunshot moments later, and she ran.
The deputies also found another resident Paul McStraw suffering from a gunshot wound to the hip.
He was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
"Our officers have located some evidence at the scene, as well as some narcotics," said Sheriff Guy. "We are following up on some potential suspects."
