GALLATIN, Tenn. -

A man is hospitalized after he was shot during a drive-by shooting in Gallatin Wednesday night.

The victim, Allison "House" Lawrence, was struck shortly after 10 p.m. while standing in a driveway in the 200 block of Greenleaf Circle.

Lawrence, 32, told police a gray or silver vehicle with a loud muffler drove by and fired two shots.  He was hit in the face and the hip.

Lawrence was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where he was listed in stable condition Thursday.

Bullets also struck several homes in the area but no other injuries were reported.

Witnesses told police the suspect vehicle fled north on Walnut Crest Drive.

Authorities believe the incident may not be random and said Lawrence may have been targeted.

The investigation is ongoing.
