NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — At least one person was injured Monday afternoon after a shooting at a gas station at the intersection of South Hamilton Road and Clarksville Pike.

Metro Nashville Police Department officers responded to a reported shooting at a Kwik Sak gas station and convenience store in the 2000 block of S Hamilton Road just after 5 p.m.

Metro police said a 16-year-old suspect was taken into custody Friday, September 16 in relation to this shooting.

Officials at the scene said an unidentified gunshot victim believed to be related to this incident ended up at a nearby hospital but was not taken by ambulance.
