Metro police continue to investigate after a crime spree across Nashville involved two shootings and at least one armed robbery early Wednesday morning.  

It began around 2:30 a.m. on Glastonbury Road in South Nashville when a woman was robbed at gunpoint outside an apartment complex. 

Metro police reported the victim said three men, all wearing gray hooded sweatshirts, jumped out of a silver SUV armed with handguns. The men robbed her of her belongings before taking off in the SUV, which was driven by a woman.  

Eleven minutes later, officers responded to a man who said he was robbed at gunpoint in the 800 block of Murfreesboro Pike. In this instance, the man was robbed by two men wearing hooded sweatshirts who ran away.  

Metro officers then were called to the Terrance Park Apartments on Elm Hill Pike just after 3:15 a.m.  

The victim told police he was approached by three men in the parking lot where he was robbed at gunpoint. One of the suspects then walked back to the victim and shot him in the leg. 

The victim’s injuries are said to be non-life threatening and the suspects matched the description given by police in the Glastonbury Road robbery. 

Just before 3:30 a.m., a second shooting victim was reported in the 1100 block of Second Avenue North in Germantown.  

Metro police said the victim was driving to work when he was hit from behind by a silver SUV. The gunman got out of the SUV and took the victim’s wallet before shooting him in the torso, according to police. 

The victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he is listed in extremely critical condition. 

According to Metro police, a police helicopter pilot and officer found the silver SUV near 19th Avenue North and Britt Place.

A 16-year-old suspect ran from the vehicle and was soon captured nearby. 

A loaded AR-15 was recovered near the SUV, according to police.
