Attackers strike in parking lot, laundry room

Separate incidents leave a man stabbed, a teen shot; neither is critically hurt A man was stabbed Monday night in a south Nashville apartment complex laundry room, and an 18-year-old was shot less than two hours later in the parking lot of a condo and apartment complex in south Nashville. Metro police Capt. David Imhof said early Tuesday morning that police were still investigating both cases and conducting interviews. Thompson Place Apartments A man was in the laundry room of the Thompson Place Apartments around 10:45 p.m. Monday when a man and a woman approached him. The man had a sharp object and stabbed the victim, Imhof said. The attacker and the woman, whom police describe as white, in her mid-30s, with blonde hair and wearing a brown shirt and brown pants, left in a red, four-door Chevy Trailblazer. It's not known yet if anything was stolen from the stabbing victim. The victim went back to his apartment, and his roommate took him to Southern Hills Medical Center. The injuries were in his head area, but they were not considered life-threatening, Imhof said. Nashboro Village Police responded to a call just before 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Nashboro Village complex, in the 100 block of Village Green. A teen, 18, was in the parking lot along with some other people when two young men, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, approached. Numerous shots were fired, and the teen was hit, Imhof said. The teen was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. His injuries were not considered life-threatening. Imhof said police are trying to ascertain the motive for the shooting. Detailed descriptions of the young men who approached the group were not available. Both incidents occurred in Metro's Hermitage Precinct. — LEIGH RAY(Tennessean)
