NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating an apparent drive-by shooting that wounded a 13-year-old boy Christmas morning.

According to police, the teenager was walking home from a market at Moormans Arm Road and Whites Creek Pike around 11:30 a.m. alongside two adults, when a silver sedan drove up, fired at least one shot and sped off.

Officers said the young boy was struck in the back. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, police revealed. 

A motive remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.

One day earlier, police had responded to a residence on nearby Crouch Drive after a man who had been shot five times knocked on the door to ask for help.

That shooting also remains under investigation.
