Hendersonville police executed a search warrant late Monday on a home in the Autumn Creek subdivision in relation to what police are now calling a robbery and attempted murder on Friday night.
One man was treated for multiple gunshot wounds and released from Hendersonville Medical Center on Saturday, according to HPD Det. Sgt. Jim Vaughn.
Vaughn said police have spoken with the victim who told police he's from California, and is currently living in Nashville.
Police want to talk with a passerby who drove the man to the hospital, and they urge that person to call them at 615-264-5303.
Authorities responded to the neighborhood north of the city at around 9:55 p.m. July 28 after neighbors heard a barrage of gunfire. When police arrived, they found an abandoned Toyota and dozens of shell casings on the ground.
At least two people are believed to have fired shots at the victim who police have said appears to have been targeted. No arrests have been made in the incident.
Police executed a search warrant at a home on Avery Trace Circle at around 10 p.m. on July 31, according to Vaughn. No one was home at the time of the search.
"This is the first time something like this has happened here," said Ward 6 Alderman and Autumn Creek resident Matt Stamper. "It's just been very shocking because it's so out of character with what you would expect here."
Stamper said that police held a neighborhood meeting on Saturday that was attended by more than 60 residents, and that police seem to have increased their presence in the area.
