NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

One person was killed and a second person injured in a shooting that resulted in a car accident Thursday afternoon in north Nashville.

Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron said the shooting took place at the intersection of Booker and Lena streets off 28th Avenue North around 2 p.m.

Two people in a Ford Explorer were shot.

After the shooting, the Explorer ran a stop sign and collided with a Lincoln Town Car.

The impact caused the Explorer to overturn.

One person inside the SUV was pronounced dead on the scene from a gunshot wound. The victim has tentatively been identified by police as 27-year-old Harold Carr.

"When I did hear the police, I just ran out and there was a boy laying over there on the grass soaking wet with blood," one witness told Nashville's News 2.

A second occupant, identified as 28-year-old Sidney Stewart, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was last listed in critical, but stable condition.

Authorities added that Stuart will be taken into police custody on an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault following his release from the hospital.

Police are continuing to search for two black men in connection to the deadly shooting who fled the scene on foot.

Nearby residents who spoke to Nashville's News 2 said they are now fearful for their lives.

"It makes you nervous. I'm nervous now," one resident, who did not want to be identified, said, adding, "I just wish everybody [would put] their guns down and stop shooting each other. It's crazy."

The motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
