Clarksville police are investigating a shooting during an alleged drug deal Tuesday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., police found a 33-year-old man inside of a truck parked on Lincoln Drive with a gunshot wound to his foot.

It was determined the man had been drinking, at some point attempted to buy drugs, and was shot and robbed.

The details of the robbery were sketchy and there were some inconsistencies found but investigators were able to identify Mark Ellis, 19, as one of the robbers.

An aggravated robbery warrant for Ellis has been issued.

He has other warrants on file for felony charges of aggravated domestic assault and criminal trespassing, among others, according to police.

Ellis should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call 911 or the Clarksville Police Department's tips line at 931-645-8477.

The 33-year-old victim was transported to Gateway Medical Center with a non-life threatening injury.
