Carolyn Temple continues to recover after she was shot last week during a robbery attempt in Belhaven. Her daughter, Tress Gardner, told JJ her mother was still in ICU but is in stable condition. Police continue to search for her assailants.
Ms. Gardner also said Precinct 4 Commander James McGowan has been in contact with Ms. Temple's family on a daily basis. Ms. Temple was shot Tuesday night during a robbery. She arrived at a friend's house on Euclid. She noticed the garbage cans were still by the street. She carried her purse while walking to the garbage cans. A maroon Chevrolet Impala stopped and a man got out of the car and tried to take her purse. Ms. Temple resisted and was shot in the abdomen. She was taken to UMC and underwent two surgeries.
*The car is thought to be a Chevy Impala. Police sources said the vehicle could very easily be a similar make and model such as a Lumina.
Kingfish note: If these guys are caught, this will be a great time to use the Attempted Murder statute.
