NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police have charged three persons in connection to a shooting in south Nashville Friday which left two people hurt.

Investigators say the incident began about 4 p.m. when a black SUV approached an 18-year-old male near a home in the 400 block of Moore Avenue, which is near Nolensville Pike and Wedgewood Avenue.

Investigators say Terrell Matthews, 23, Kimberly Booker, 21,  and a 17-year-old male, came to the teen's residence for a drug transaction. 

When the 18-year-old joined the trio inside the vehicle, Matthews allegedly pulled a gun on him. 

During a struggle, the 18-year-old was shot in the shoulder and Matthews in the leg. 

One of the teen's relatives heard the shots and came outside to find Matthews physically on top of him.

That relative hit Matthews in the head with a hammer in defense of the teen.

While this was taking place, Kimberly and the 17-year-old male drove away in the SUV.

Another relative, who has a handgun carry permit, held Matthews at gunpoint until police arrived.

The 18-year-old and Matthews were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening wounds. 

Matthews was released during the night. 

The 18-year-old was admitted.

During the investigation, the SUV was recovered and police were able to take Booker and the 17-year-old into custody. 

All three defendants are charged with especially aggravated robbery. 

Matthews and Kimberly Booker are being held in lieu of $100,000 bond each. 

The 17-year-old is charged at Juvenile Court.
