NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person was critically hurt when a group of men was forced from a car, robbed and shot at outside of a South Nashville home.

The incident happened around midnight Thursday on Anderson Drive, located just west of Percy Priest Lake.

Metro Nashville police officers said a group of men drove up to a home when they were approached by four suspects, who forced them from their car and onto the ground and robbed them.

One of the victims was shot in the groin while trying to get away. He was taken to an area hospital with critical injuries. Another man was hurt when he was pistol-whipped.

The four suspects got away.
