An investigation was underway after a man with a gunshot wound walked into a Nashville area gas station. 

The incident was reported Monday morning along Murfreesboro Pike.

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said the victim walked into the Shell Station around 6:40 a.m. after getting shot in the hand. He waited for medics to arrive outside the store.  

He claimed he was shot during a robbery in which a suspect demanded money. 

According to police, the victim showed up at the same gas station before 3 a.m. to buy beer with a friend, but was asked to leave because he was allegedly too intoxicated. 

Detectives said they’re hoping to get surveillance videos from businesses around the area to learn more.
