Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police are investigating an early morning shooting in south Nashville.

A truck driver was shot in the abdomen around 5 a.m. Saturday on Millwood Drive near the intersection of Murfreesboro Pike.

The 30-year-old victim drove his rig onto Murfreesboro Pike, but stopped in the roadway, where he was found by responding officers.

He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition.

According to Captain Ben Dicke, the truck driver was shot by an unidentified man in a white vehicle. It is unclear if the suspect was captured following the shooting.

One westbound lane of Murfreesboro Pike was shutdown, blocked by the semi-truck, for three hours, while investigators processed the scene.

The incident is believed to be drug-related, but the investigation is ongoing.
