Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was hurt in a shooting during a robbery attempt overnight in the Whites Creek area of Nashville.

A man, woman, and the woman's young daughter were in the parking lot of an apartment complex on E. Nocturne Drive around midnight when a man approached them with a gun.

The victims told police the robber pointed a gun at them, and told them to "give me everything." The gunman allegedly put the gun to the man's head, and told him to let the woman and her daughter go.

When the woman and her daughter ran away, the male victim tried running away as well. The gunman opened fire, and the man was shot in the leg.

The gunman allegedly went through the victim's pockets after he fell to the ground, and then fled the scene on foot.

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The woman and her daughter were not hurt. No identities were released.

Police K-9 units searched the area, but did not find the gunman. A description was not immediately released.
