An exchange of gunfire Tuesday afternoon between two cars on Buena Vista Pike near Moormans Arm Road left four teens wounded after their car crashed into a telephone pole.
Eighteen-year-olds Darryn Carter and Charles Williams and 19-year-olds Emmanuel Webb and Richard Jackson were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center following the 4 p.m. wreck.
Police say Carter was behind the wheel of a Pontiac Bonneville involved in a shootout with the occupants of a Chrysler 300.
Witnesses said at least 12 to 15 shots were fired before the Pontiac crashed.
John Wright was among those who assisted the car's occupants.
"We just kept talking to him telling him, ‘Hang on. Just hang on buddy,'" Wright said in recalling his conversation with one of the victims.
In the hours after the incident, Nashville's News 2 obtained exclusive surveillance video of the four teens in the Pontiac.
After the crash, the video shows at least two of them run from the car and into a nearby wooded area.
"We now know that they ran into the woods to hide a gun or guns," police spokesperson Don Aaron explained.
Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding Tuesday's shooting as they continue to search for the driver of the Chrysler 300.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
Webb and Carter have criminal histories in Nashville. They were convicted of robbing a woman of her purse in 2011.
