A suspect is sought by authorities in connection with the shooting of a FedEx delivery driver on Thursday, Dec. 18, in Memphis, Tenn.

The driver is listed in stable condition Friday after being shot in the lower part of his body with a high-powered rifle.

WMC-TV reports it happened south of the Memphis International Airport when the truck was stopped at an intersection in the industrial area of Capleville. Witnesses say a man got out of his minivan and fired one shot at the truck.

The vehicle being sought is a silver 2002 Chrysler Town & Country minivan with the tag number TN 633-YKY.
