Metro police need help to find a gunman who kidnapped, shot and tried to rob a 19-year-old woman in East Nashville Wednesday.

The victim was walking to her car on Boscobel Street after babysitting when the suspect approached her with a pistol drawn, got in her car with her and told her to drive, according to Metro police. 

Police said he forced her to withdraw money from an ATM at First Tennessee Bank at 110 30th Avenue South off West End Avenue  

While at the ATM, the victim reportedly got out of the car and tried to escape.

Metro police said the gunman shot her in the left hip while he was sitting in the passenger seat of the car.  She was able to run inside the bank for help. 

At that point, the suspect ran from the car and was last seen on a surveillance camera on Vanderbilt University property. 

The shooting victim was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was treated and released.

The gunman is believed to be in his 20s and was wearing a black hooded jacket. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall with a thin build.
