Metro police told News 2 the victim arrived at TriStar Summit Medical Center with a gunshot wound. He was transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The victim was struck in the shoulder and is expected to survive.

He reportedly told police he was at his mom’s apartment when a blue Lexus pulled up nearby. He said two men got out of the vehicle and started shooting at him.
