An argument between three men outside a south Nashville restaurant led to a man getting shot inside the eatery a short time later.
Metro police said the shooting happened just before 10 p.m. at the Banadir Restaurant on Philfre Court off Murfreesboro Pike.
The victim was shot in the leg just above the knee cap and was also pistol whipped in the head.
Police do not know what motivated the shooting other than the argument.
The victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police are searching for two suspects.
Anyone with information is urged to call Metro police or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
