MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) — Police are investigating after a man was shot in Murfreesboro early Thursday morning.  

The shooting happened in the 700 block of Minor Street just before 1 a.m.  

Police said the victim, 49-year-old Darnell Mayer, approached a vehicle and spoke briefly with two occupants before one of them started shooting.

Witnesses reported seeing a dark-colored vehicle leaving the area. No arrests have been made and a motive has not yet been determined.

Mayer was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and was last listed in stable condition.

Police said Mayer was also shot at the corner of Minor and Hancock streets on May 6. Then, just over a month later, police said he was injured after being hit by a car while walking near Mercury and Middle Tennessee boulevards.

Mayer told police he believes someone was trying to kill him since he didn’t die in the May shooting. The investigation into both of those previous incidents is ongoing.
