MADISON, Tenn - A case of mistaken identity may have led to a shooting in Davidson County.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said the shooting happened around 7 p.m. near the intersection of Forest Park and Neelys Bend Road in Madison.

Police think the gunman was with several other people at the time of the shooting.

Investigators said a group of people were walking down the street when another group started yelling in their direction. The second group was apparently calling out a name of someone who was not in the first group.

According to police, an argument started and then four to five shots were fired.

One person was hit once. The victim was taken in a personal vehicle to Skyline hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said they are trying to figure out who was in this group.

"We have nicknames," said Metro Police Sergeant Chris Steele. "We're going to go back and search those names and see if we can come up with the real names of the individuals. We'll put our suspects in the lineup and hopefully our victims will be able to ID them."

If you have any information on this case you are encouraged to call Metro Police at 862-8600.
