NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after a 15-year-old was shot while inside a stolen car outside of a home off Brick Church Pike Monday morning.

Officers responded around 8:30 a.m. to a shooting on Rainwood Drive near Woodstock Drive.

According to police, a 27-year-old man had tracked his girlfriend’s stolen vehicle to the area. The car had been taken last week while it was left warming up, officers said.

The man told detectives he blocked in the stolen vehicle and walked up to the driver’s side of the car in an attempt to get it back. He explained he saw two juveniles inside, including a 15-year-old driver who attempted to flee, striking two vehicles.
