A manhunt got underway in south Nashville after a gunman shot two women at an apartment complex. 

Metro Nashville Police officers were called to the scene at Rex Apartments on Plus Park Boulevard around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said one of the women was shot in the face and the stomach. She was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she’s listed in critical condition.

The other woman was shot in the arm and is expected to be okay.

Police said the gunman barged into the apartment and demanded "Where's it at?" before opening fire.

They believe the suspect went there with the intent of committing a robbery and shot the women before leaving the crime scene.

This was the most recent incident in a violent week in Nashville. Since May 17, 14 people have been shot in the Metro area - five of those were fatal shootings.
