Man Shot In Leg During Robbery Outside Apartments

CREATED Apr 16, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was shot in the leg during a robbery outside an apartment complex on Tuesday night.

Police were called to the Granstaff Apartments on Rosa Parks Boulevard around 10:15 p.m. after a resident called to report that someone had been shot during a fight between two men.

When officers arrived, they did not find the shooting victim, but found bullet casings, blood and other evidence of a struggle in the parking lot. They also learned that a gunshot victim had been taken to St. Thomas Midtown hospital by private vehicle.

The victim suffered a non-life threatening injury.

He told police that a man with a gun approached him in the parking lot and demanded his money. He complied, but the man shot him once in the leg before fleeing on foot.

A helicopter and K-9 units were called out to search the area, but the robber was not found.

Anyone with information was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (615)74-CRIME.
