"My dad came back to the door and knocked on the door and his wife came and he said he was shot," said Bunton.

"Continue to pray for us and if you know anything call the police, because this real tragic," she said.

Bunton is upset that the suspect took off with her father's money, but thankful the outcome was not worse.

"Nothing has ever happened here before, we've never had anything like this, so, it was a shocker a big shocker," said Bunton.

The family and Memphis police urge anyone with information to come forward by calling 901-528-CASH.
