Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, two strangers approached a young man standing out in a parking lot just across from a club, formerly known as Club 615.
"At that point, the male black suspect attempted to rob the victim. The victim struggled with the suspect to some degree. Another male black suspect walked up and subsequently the victim was shot one time," said Captain David Imhof of the Metro Police Department.
After being shot police said the 20-year-old victim located some friends, who then drove him to Baptist Hospital.
Investigators said the injuries are non-life threatening.
Police continued to search for both suspects in the case Wednesday morning. Police also have been in contact with the victim and other witnesses who were at club when the shooting took place.
