NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Officers are investigating after they were alerted of a shooting victim at a seatbelt checkpoint in Nashville Friday night.

The man was being taken to a hospital in a private vehicle when the driver flagged down troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol at the checkpoint on Bell Road.

Officials say the victim was shot several times at a residence on Scott Valley Drive, just off of Murfreesboro Pike around 7:30 p.m.

The victim suffered from multiple gunshot wound to his legs.

He was transported to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Two subjects of interest were taken into custody, but were not charged.  One suspect was arrested on an unrelated warrant.

The investigation is ongoing.
