CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A shooting in Clarksville late Friday night have left police searching for a shooter.

Officers were called to Iris Lane around 11:50 p.m. for a shooting that had taken place, police said. When they arrived on the scene, they found a 25-year-old male victim shot, inside a vehicle.

The victim was transported by Lifeflight to a Nashville hospital. He is stable, but he remains in critical condition.

Officers believe an Iris Lane resident was expecting the victim's arrival and was on the phone with him. When the Iris Lane resident heard what sounded like fireworks, the phone connection was lost.

The resident went outside, found the victim shot and called 911.
