A Murfreesboro resident was shocked to find a gunshot victim on his front porch.
The shooting happened Wednesday night at Campus Villa Apartments.
The homeowner told NewsChannel 5 that his girlfriend heard gunshots and walked outside to see what happened.
At that point, the victim saw her and ran toward her for help. He laid down on the front porch until first responders arrived.
Murfreesboro Fire Rescue EMTs gave aid until the young victim transported to Vanderbilt University Medical center, where he underwent surgery.
