The ’Walking In Memphis’ singer survives carjacking…
’WALKING IN MEMPHIS’ singer MARC COHN is recovering after being shot in the head.
The singer was involved in an attempted carjacking as he left a show in Denver, USA, on August 8 and survived despite been hit in the head by a bullet.
“Frankly, I can’t tell you how he survived,” Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson told BBC News after revealing the shell had hit Cohn in the temple but did not enter his skull.
The attacker had attempted to commandeer Cohn’s tourbus after fleeing from police investigating the allegeded use of a stolen credit card at a nearby hotel.
Police arrested 26 year-old Joseph W Yacteen in connection with the case following a brief stand off at a nearby house. Officers used tear gas to force the suspect out.
Cohn, 46, charted with ’Walking In Memphis’ in 1991, and won a Grammy that year as best new artist.
