This is a developing story.

A man was shot at the 4100 block of Highland Avenue Tuesday night, Chattanooga police say.

He was taken to a local hospital and his condition is not known at this time.

A woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation, said she had just returned from taking her grandchildren home just on the other side of where the shooting took place.

She said she heard what she thought sounded like fire crackers.

A car was seen in the road with its headlights still on. The woman said that was the car the victim was in.
