An alleged home invasion early Friday morning in McMinn County sent one victim to a local hospital for examination and treatment.
McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy said in a news release that a woman had been sleeping on her couch when a man, wearing a dark-colored hoodie entered her home and began beating her about 2:00am.
She told deputies that she later heard a shot.
When two McMinn County deputies arrived at the home, they found another person suffering from a gunshot wound to the hip.
The male gunshot victim was flown to an area hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries, and may be released this morning.
The investigation is underway.
Hundreds gathered at Coolidge Park, protesting the violence that happened in Charlottesville Thursday night.
