Chattanooga police are still investigating an attempted robbery and shooting that occurred this morning at 4409 Drummond Drive.

Victim Calvin McGhee called police immediately after the shooting and said that two black males attempted to rob him as he was leaving for work, according to police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary.

After two men pulled guns on him, McGhee said, he pulled his own gun and fired at both suspects, hitting at least one of them.

McGhee described the suspects as two young black males wearing all black clothes. He said one was at least 6 foot and the other around 5 foot 7.

Moments after the call was reported to police, responding officers were told about a shooting victim who had just shown up at a local hospital. The victim seemed to match the physical description of one of the suspects described by McGhee, Weary said.

Twenty five-year-old Brandon Foster was identified as the person shot and is being treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen, which does not appear to be life threatening, said Weary.

Investigators are still working to verify that Foster is one of the involved suspects and trying to determine who the other suspect is.

McGhee was not injured in the incident and no charges are expected to be filed against him, said Weary.
