NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A person was shot in an attempted robbery in South Nashville.

Metro Nashville Police officers responded to a robbery call at the Mandolin Apartments Tuesday night.

They say two men were getting out of their car when two strangers pulled up next to them in a Dodge Charger. They said two men got out of the car holding guns and demanded their belongings.

One of the victims began arguing with one of the suspects. That's when that suspect shot the victim in the left leg and got back in the Charger, both of them getting away.

The victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are searching for the two suspects who were described as men in their early 20s wearing black hoodies with black ski masks.
