2 injured, buildings struck in shootout on Church Street


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police are still investigating after two people were shot and multiple buildings and vehicles were hit by gunfire in Midtown late Thursday night. 

The shots were fired in the 1700 block of Church Street just before midnight.  

Police said it all started inside of The WKND night club. Witnesses told them there was a ‘beef’ between two groups. Security told police that a maroon car showed up outside and a bunch of guys who had just gotten into the club then ran out, got guns out of their car and began shooting at the maroon car.  

Investigators say the maroon car stopped at 18th Street and the driver got out with a rifle and fired several rounds back toward the club. Dozens of cars were hit, including a woman who was trying to park her car with a friend. The car and victim were found on 2nd Avenue shortly after the shooting.  

Police said the friend tried to drive the victim to the hospital but couldn’t find a hospital. A second victim walked into the hospital and told police he was shot in the arm by his own crew by accident.  

Both gunshot victims are okay, but police said people could have died.
