NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Police say two people are in custody after a man was shot in the legs Friday evening in south Nashville.

The man was shot about 7 p.m. in a residential area near Murfreesboro Road and Edge O Lake Drive.

He then got into his personal vehicle and was able to drive away, coming upon a Tennessee Highway Patrol checkpoint a short distance away.

The man told state troopers he had been shot, and he was then transported to an area hospital for treatment.

He is expected to survive, police said.
