Shooting at smoke shop

MADISON, TN (WSMV) - A man was shot overnight at a smoke shop in Madison after an argument turned into a struggle over a gun. 

Police say around 11:15 p.m., they responded to a man lying on the floor of Smoke for Less tobacco shop on Gallatin Pike North with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Skyline Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Minutes later, the shooter reportedly contacted police and requested to speak with officers at the scene. He then admitted to police that he had used the weapon, but claimed it was self-defense. Investigators later revealed that the victim and the other man involved both have a child with the same mother. 

After reviewing surveillance video and speaking with witnesses, officials say the shooter will not be charged at this time. The investigation is on-going.
