A man was shot Monday night after he says a man approached him and tried to sell him drugs in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant.

The incident reportedly happened outside of Jack In the Box located at 1504 Hampton Street, not far from West Trinity Lane northeast of Nashville.

The 43-year-old victim told police he was walking across the parking lot when he was approached by a black male who offered to sell him drugs.

The victim said he refused and got into a verbal argument with the gunman, an arrest report states.

During the argument, the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired two shots.

The victim was grazed in his right shin and sustained non-critical injuries.

The suspect is described as a five foot, eight inch tall black male with a bald head, approximately 35 years old. He was wearing blue jeans and a blue hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
