NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An attempted robbery led to gunfire in North Nashville Sunday afternoon.

It took place at the Little Barn Market Discount Tobacco And Beer on the corner of Brick Church Pike and Ewing Street.

An eyewitness told News 2 a man, an early-to-mid 20s African-American wearing a black shirt and white pants, walked into the store wearing a wig.

The witness said, “He walked in the store before I walked in. And I walked in behind him. And he went back to the beer coolers and when I saw him coming up the aisle with a rag around his hand, I saw the end of a pistol.”

The witness, who asked us not to identify him, said the man in the wig shot the clerk in the upper right shoulder. Then he ran out of the store and down Ewing Drive, turned left onto Anna Court and disappeared into the wooded area.
