Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A teenager was shot, and police are trying to track down the gunman.

The 16-year-old victim was shot in the parking lot at Pagoda Condominiums on Welch Road Wednesday night.

Police say the bullet went through the victim's hip, and the shooter ran from the scene.

The victim says he was talking to some friends at the south Nashville apartment complex when a man wearing a hoodie came out from behind a nearby building and started shooting at him and his friends.

The teen showed up to Southern Hills Medical Center with a gunshot wound. He says he does not know who shot him or why someone would be after him.

Right now, police are trying to figure out a motive. They say this does not appear to be a robbery.
