NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) OneRepublic is requesting people to donate to a GoFundMe page to help the wife of one of their crewmembers who was shot and paralyzed.
The woman lost her spleen and is undergroing multiple surgeries, according to OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder.
“This video isn’t about the epidemic of gun violence that exists in this country, which is unspeakable and me physically ill,” Tedder said in the video. “This is about helping people that are close to us, that mean everything to us.”
Metro Nashville police said the woman, 39, was walking her dogs around 12:30 am Aug. 8 when a vehicle drove past, turned around and drove past her again before stopping, according to the Tennessean. The woman told police that words were exchanged before someone in the car shot her and drove away.
She was shot in the lower back and sustained significant injuries. The motive was unclear.
Nashville police recently arrested a 16-year-old in connection to a string of violent robberies and shooting across the city, but it is not known if he is associated with this attack.
