Man Hurt In Drive-By Shooting On University Court

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was injured in a drive-by shooting just south of downtown Nashville late Thursday night.

The victim told police he and his friend were walking on University Court around 11:30 p.m. when a dark-colored car pulled up and someone inside started shooting.

He was hit in the leg and taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

His friend wasn't hurt, but police said both men have dozens of prior arrests for multiple offenses, including drug-related activity. Neither man lives in the area, and told police they were visiting their girlfriends.

Police also said they found narcotics hidden near the victim.

Investigators are now looking for the shooter's car, which was described as a dark colored sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala.
