NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man says he fought back after someone shot him in his backyard in Nashville.

Wednesday night, a woman flagged down some officers with the Juvenile Task Force out on patrol and told them someone shot had her husband.

Police say the victim was in the backyard of his home on Crowe Drive when two men walked up to him and shot him in the stomach.

The victim then pulled out a gun of his own and began firing but the gunmen got away. Police are still unsure if the victim hit either during the gunfire.

The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries but he is expected to survive.

According to police, someone has since dropped a man off at St. Thomas Hospital who matched the description of one of the gunmen. He had a gunshot wound but police are unsure if he was involved in this particular shooting.

This is an ongoing investigation.
