Police say a 15-year-old was shot in Nashville after a man found him in his girlfriend’s stolen car.

The ordeal unfolded around 8:30 a.m. Monday. Metro Nashville police said a 27-year-old man and his girlfriend tracked the car to the address after it was stolen last week.

Police said there were two people in the vehicle, both of whom appeared to be teens. The man used his car to box in the other to keep the driver from leaving.

The teen driver tried to drive away and hit the shooter’s car and another vehicle. The man shot at the car several times, hitting the teen in the arm. The other suspect ran and hasn’t been found.

The man drove the teen to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury. Police said the shooter's vehicle, the shooter, and the juvenile were all detained at the hospital for further investigation.
