There have been no credible sightings of a man suspected in a shooting last week in Hickman County that left another man hospitalized in Nashville. 

The Hickman County Sheriff’s Office has identified Joseph Dunn, also known as Adrian Dunn, as the gunman. 

The victim told detectives he was shot Friday near some picnic tables in front of the Pinewood Store on Highway 48. 

According to investigators, the victim showed up at a home on Pinewood Road West, just feet away from the shooting scene, with a shotgun wound to his right side. 

Someone at that residence called 911. 

The shooting victim was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. He is expected to survive. 

Deputies said Dunn left the scene in a green Mercury Marquis and he is believed to be armed with a 12-gauge sawed-off shotgun.
