NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after a man was shot during an attempted robbery at a Madison apartment complex Monday night.
Officers responded just before 9 p.m. to a shooting on Walton Lane, north of Briley Parkway.
When police arrived, they said they located a man with a gunshot wound behind his right knee. He was transported to TriStar Skyline Medical Center with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, according to investigators.
The victim told police he was getting into his truck to drive to work, when he was approached by a person who demanded his wallet. The victim stated he told the would-be robber he wanted to take his driver’s license out of his wallet before handing it over, so the gunman fired a shot and left without taking anything.
No additional information was immediately released, including a description of the shooter.
