|An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg during an altercation over money Thursday night outside of the CiCi's Pizza Buffet in the 200 block of Memorial Boulevard in Murfreesboro.
The man was injured just before 10 p.m. when he attempted to collect on a debt from one of the two suspects who were sitting in a dark-colored Chrysler PT Cruiser outside of the restaurant, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.
Within moments of the argument, an unidentified black male suspect exited the vehicle and pointed a small handgun at the man, who was then shot while he was walking away from the car.
The suspects then fled the scene toward Saint Clair Street, while the man waited for several minutes before calling friends to drive him to Middle Tennessee Medical Center. Upon his arrival at the hospital, emergency room physicians reported the shooting to police.
One of the suspects is described as a white male who known only by his first name, Austin, and the other is a black male with dreadlocks. Both are believed to be in their late-teens or early-20s.
