“A burglary attempt sent a man first to the hospital and then to jail in Franklin early Wednesday morning. ‘I got a shot off him. He was coming right towards me,’ the victim told 911 dispatchers. The victim’s nephew tells Local 12 that his uncle is partially blind and had just gotten home from the hospital Tuesday evening. ‘I don’t know if it hit him or not,’ the victim told dispatchers. Police, with the assistance of a K-9, followed a trail of blood down an alleyway and found Jeffery Carl, 36, hiding in a shed around the corner. That shed is owned by Joe Lewis, who happens to be a friend of Carl’s. ‘My reaction was, ‘Damn, somebody shot that boy in the a**,’’ said Lewis.” (11/02/22)
