Allen Lee Edge, 60, Thinks He Was Electrocuted, But Turns Out To Be Shot Twice

Friday, August 08, 2014

A man was shot twice early Friday morning, and he said he initially thought he had been shocked.

At approximately 6:35 a.m., the Chattanooga Police Department responded to 8022 Old Lee Highway on a person shot call. 

Upon arrival the victim, Allen Lee Edge, 60, was found bleeding profusely and appeared to have been shot. Medics arrived on the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital while Chattanooga Police established a crime scene.

At approximately 7:18 a.m., a CPD investigator was advised of the incident and responded to the local hospital to investigate the facts in the case. 

Mr. Edge said that he was unsure of what happened to him, but did believe that he was electrocuted by some unknown object while asleep and that is what caused him to bleed. Mr. Edge insisted that he was not shot; however, the attending physician advised that he was shot once in his right shoulder and again in his upper right arm. 

There were no surveillance cameras in the area to capture or record the incident as it transpired. Investigators were also unable to locate any witnesses, leads, or suspect information due to lack of evidence. 

Chattanooga Police ask anyone with information regarding this crime to call 423 698-2525.  The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released when available.
