One person was injured in a shooting during an online sale exchange near the Looby Community Center in Nashville.

It happened behind the Looby Library near Jennings Street and 11th Avenue North Friday afternoon.

According to officials, the victim planned to meet the suspects at the library to sell them something through an app similar to Offer Up.

However, during the interaction, the victim was shot in the arms.

A witness told NewsChannel 5 the victim asked him to call 911 after being shot during a meetup to exchange something after an online sale. The witness said the victim then tried to chase the suspect but returned to wait for first responders.

One of the suspects were described as being 5'11 tall and 200 lbs with tan pants. The second was described as being 5'6" tall, weighing 200 lbs with a white color sweatshirt. 

The library is closed on Fridays; therefore, the investigation did not impact anyone in the building.
