LEWISBURG, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 29-year-old man wanted for allegedly shooting a pregnant Lewisburg woman has surrendered to police.
James Stevenson turned himself into detectives Wednesday at the Marshall County jail.
Stevenson was wanted by police for a shooting that seriously injured 21-year-old Dixie Matthews Saturday near Jason Maxwell Blvd. in Lewisburg.
“She said he shot her once, shot again and it went through the window and then he was shooting as she pulled away,” grandmother Cheryl Woods told News 2.
Matthews’ toddler son was also in the car at the time of the shooting. He was not injured.
The victim remains hospitalized for serious injuries at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She has since undergone surgery.
Her unborn baby also survived the shooting and surgery.
“She is strong and she is a tough, young girl,” Woods said.
According to police, Matthews and Stevenson had previously been in a relationship.
At the time of the shooting, police said the victim had an order of protection against Stevenson.
A motive for the shooting has not been released.
Stevenson is being held on a $500,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 29.
