MACON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man and woman were killed in an early morning shooting in Macon County Saturday.
It happened at a home in the 5100 block of New Harmony Road near Hartsville sometime after Midnight.
According to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Niland, a neighbor discovered the victims in a car and called 911.
One of the victims was deceased at the scene and the other died later Saturday morning. They have been identified as 44-year-old James Turner and 32-year-old Alisha Mondoni.
A neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified, told News 2 he didn’t hear the gunfire but was awoken around 1 a.m. by another neighbor who discovered the two victims.
“When I finally realized that somebody was knocking on my window, I walked out and she said somebody’s been shot,” he told News 2.
He rushed to Turner’s home where he found Mondoni deceased and Turner still fighting for his life.
“I noticed he had several gun wounds to the lower abdomen. I told my wife to call 911 and bring me two towels.”
He says he tended to Turner’s wounds and had one of the last conversations with the 44-year-old father before he passed away.
“He kept saying, ‘I didn’t see it coming, I didn’t see it coming.’ I kept asking him you know, ‘Who did this to you? Who did this to you?’ and it just seemed like every time that came out of my mouth, he would kind of pass out again. I just tried to keep him from bleeding out and tried to save his life, but it didn’t go as planned. It’s just, it’s just sad.”
Friends of Mondoni say she worked at Subway and was a mother of four.
Police told News 2 they’re following several leads.
The TBI and Macon County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the shooting.
