So much for vigilante justice in Nashville, Tennessee.
A Vanderbilt University football player’s plan to recover his stolen iPhone sparked a shooting outside a Nashville Target on Monday night and led to two of his teammates being shot, according to police.
The shooting, which took place at the store at on White Bridge Road, stemmed from an arranged meeting between two groups — a trio of football players and the thieves who Metro police say stole the phone and fired the shots.
Both groups brought weapons, police said, although one side — the players — had only a pellet gun.
As of Tuesday, the shooting suspects remained at large and both injured players were expected to recover, police spokesman Don Aaron said.
When pellet guns are outlawed, only football players will have pellet guns. Or something like that.
