Juvenile injured after gunfire at short-term rental property in East Nashville


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after a juvenile was injured when gunshots were reportedly fired inside a short-term rental property in East Nashville late Thursday night.

Officers responded around 11 p.m. to a reported shooting on Stainback Avenue near Marie Street.

Police said a juvenile was transported from the scene to a Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment of a serious cut.

At some point, officers said someone fired multiple gunshots inside the short-term rental property, but it did not appear anyone was hit.

“I heard very rapid fire, five to seven shots,” Janet Pollock, who lives nearby, told News 2.

She explained, “I grabbed my phone, I ran out to call 911 and there were kids. I call them kids, they were in their late teens, early twenties, just pouring out of the house, right down the street.”

The Nashville Fire Department said it appeared the juvenile had been injured after being hit in the face with a bottle.

No additional details were immediately released by investigators.
