CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A Chattanooga man thought he had been shocked while sleeping in his bed turned out to be shot - twice.

Police responded to 8022 Old Lee Highway at 6:35am Friday to reports of a person shot.

Sixty-year-old Allen Lee Edge was bleeding profusely when police arrived early Friday morning, and emergency medical personnel determined Edge had been shot twice; once in the right shoulder and in the right arm according to a news release from the Chattanooga Police Department.

Edge was transported to a local hospital for examination and treatment, but denied that he had been shot.


Investigators have not been able to locate any witnesses, leads or suspects 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.
