NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —A man shot during an attempted robbery Thursday afternoon in downtown Nashville had an active warrant for failure to appear on a burglary charge in Indiana

Metro police responded around 3 p.m. to the intersection of Ewing Avenue and Middleton Street where Nathan Knowles was located with a gunshot wound to his leg.

Knowles, 37, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he told officers he was approached by a man who demanded his phone.

When the victim refused to hand it over, he was shot in the leg, police said.

Witnesses provided a description of the suspected gunman, identified by officers as Tony Norman, and he was captured nearby a short time later.

Norman, 37, was charged with especially aggravated robbery.

While Knowles was hospitalized, police determined he had a nationwide full extradition warrant for failure to appear on a burglary charge out of Indiana.

He was lodged in the Metro jail on a charge of fugitive from justice.
