NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —Metro police are investigating after a man was seriously injured and another assaulted during a robbery attempt in Antioch late Wednesday night.  

The gunshot victim told Metro police the robbery happened when he and three others arrived at a duplex on Anderson Road in the Priest Lake community just before midnight. 

When the victims arrived at the home, a car stopped them and four suspects got out, demanded money and told the victims to lie on the ground, according to investigators.

The suspects reportedly fled the scene in a dark-colored sedan. Two of the four suspects were described by Metro police as black men.
