NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Metro Nashville Police are looking for the suspects responsible for shooting a man on Highway 100 at Old Hickory Boulevard on Monday.

Police say around 9:30 p.m., the victim's vehicle was struck from behind by the driver of a dark grey sedan, possibly a Honda or Nissan. When the man got out to check for damage to his car, a gunman exited the passenger side of the sedan and demanded the victim's belongings.

Witnesses say the 26-year-old victim tried to push away the gunman -described as a black teen- and was shot.

Another man in another car drove off after the gunman pointed the gun in his direction. The gunman then got back into the passenger side of the sedan and they pursued the second man but he was able to elude them.

The original gunshot victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he is in critical but stable condition.

Police believe the shooting suspect and driver could be connected to vehicle thefts outside convenience stores at 481 Old Hickory Boulevard and 7201 Highway 70 South. The young suspects could be connected to other robberies.

Anyone with information about the shooting/robbery is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
