TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (WKRN) – It’s something you’d never expect to see: a man showing up at your front door covered in blood.

That’s exactly what happened to a family in Tullahoma, about 75 miles south of Nashville, Monday night.

According to police, the man, identified as 33-year-old Jeremy Fielding, walked to the home on North College Street to ask for help.

He stumbled inside and said, “Please help me.”

Spokesman Winston Brooks with the Tullahoma Police Department said Fielding had been shot four times. A neighbor, who was at the home, called 911.

“He needs an ambulance badly. He’s been shot,” neighbor Tanya Winton told the dispatcher.

She told News 2 Fielding is the father of a young boy.

“It scared me. I couldn’t stop shaking,” said Winton, describing what she said was like a scene out of a horror movie.

“I hope he makes it through for his little boy,” she continued.

Eric McDaniel, who lives at the home, told News 2 they were watching a movie when everything unfolded.

When asked why he thinks Fielding came there, McDaniel answered, “He knows my sister was a nurse.”

His sister helped Fielding, turning his head to the side to keep him from choking on his blood.

According to the police report, officers followed a blood trail which took them to a house on East Grundy Street, half a block away.

A motive has yet to be determined and the people responsible are on the run. The investigation is ongoing.

Fielding’s friends told News 2 he was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. They said he is in stable condition in the intensive care unit.
