November 9th, 2011 by Staff Report in Local - Breaking News

Chattanooga police are still working the case of a reported shooting on Tunnel Boulevard from Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to 1114 Tunnel Blvd. around 3:30 p.m. after Brandon Arnold, 19, reported that he'd been shot in the right hip, said police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

Arnold initially told police he'd been shot at 1307 Tunnel Blvd. and walked to the other address to call police, but officers weren't able to locate a crime scene at either location.

Arnold was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released, Weary said.

Arnold described the suspect as a light-skinned black male with dreadlock hair, driving a white two-door vehicle - possibly a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Police have no suspects or leads in the case, and say the motive for the shooting is currently unknown.
