A man was injured after he was hit by a bullet while watching the fireworks show in Nashville.

The incident happened Tuesday night while the victim was watching fireworks over on Rosa L. Parks Boulevard.

Someone apparently started firing a gun, likely in an act of celebration, and a single round hit the man in the right leg. 

He was treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
 
Police were still investigating. At this time, it appeared to be the result of a stray bullet striking a random victim.
