Police are searching for a suspect following a shooting early Thursday morning at a Madison apartment complex.

Officers on routine patrol told Nashville's News 2 they noticed someone running through the Forest Park Apartments just before 5 a.m.  Police then found a black male with a gunshot wound.

Investigators said the victim met a woman at a nightclub hours before the incident and came back to the apartment after leaving the club.

While in the apartment, a black male suspect came into the room where they were sitting and held a gun to the victim's head. The two began to argue before the gun was discharged, striking the man in the stomach.

According to police the suspect and woman fled from the scene.

Police closed off several area roads and called in K-9 units to sweep the area, but were unable to find the suspect.

Police are looking for the woman with the victim at the time of the incident but are not calling her a suspect.

Police were unsure which apartment building the shooting happened in and told Nashville's News 2 they planned to remain on the scene for several hours gathering information.

The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for what police said were serious injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
