NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A 19-year-old man who was shot in the head late Wednesday night is now under investigation in connection with four robberies.

The shooting occurred just after 11:30 p.m. on Arbor Place near the Mission Mill Creek Apartments.

Initially police said the shooting victim, William Simmons, stated two people were trying to rob him before he was shot.

During the course of their investigation, police said they began to have strong reason to doubt Simmons’ account and believed he could be connected to four apartment robberies that occurred at separate complexes Wednesday.

Police said Simmons may have been shot by an associate.

Simmons was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 74-CRIME.
