MADISON, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two young men are recovering from minor injuries after a drive-by shooting at the Nashwood Park apartment complex on Dupont Avenue.

According to Metro Police, the two 19-year-olds were sitting in a car when a dark-colored sedan drove by and shot at them. Both teens were struck.

Dozens of evidence markers were visible in the parking lot. An officer on-scene confirmed they found about 80 shell casings that appear to have come from a rifle like an AR-15.

Neighbors say it was so loud they thought someone was shooting off fireworks. One man says a bullet shattered the window of his truck. Another woman says she spotted a bullet hole in the side of her building.

Investigators believe the shooting to be targeted. One of the victims was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center for treatment and the other was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The dark sedan and suspects have not yet been found.
