BORDEAUX, TENNESSEE — When you bring a knife to a gunfight, bad things usually happen to the one with the knife.
Although in this case, an armed security guard was also injured as a result of a knife-wielding shoplifter during a confrontation.
Metro Nashville police responded to Walgreens, 3130 Clarksville Pike, at 4 a.m. after a reported shooting. They say a security guard got into an altercation with a man after he attempted to leave with items.
The security guard shot the alleged shoplifter in both legs and the security guard suffered a cut to the wrist after the man pulled out a knife.
The alleged shoplifter was also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
