Man shot in west Nashville apartment during possible robbery

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man was shot three times in his west Nashville apartment during a possible robbery late Sunday night.

According to police, it happened just before Midnight at the Village West Apartments on Tennessee Avenue.

Two men were inside, one in a bedroom and the other in a living area, when a third man walked in through an unlocked door and demanded money, the victim told police.

There was a scuffle and the victim in the bedroom walked into the living area to see what was happening. At some point the suspect fired three shots hitting the victim in his lower body, police said. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said they were unsure if anything was actually taken from the apartment and didn’t have a good suspect description.

The second man in the apartment wasn’t injured.

Anyone with information regarding the incident should call metro police at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
