South Precinct detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting of a man whose body was discovered Saturday at 1:50 a.m. lying near garbage dumpsters at the Shadow Bluff Apartments, 221 Plus Park Boulevard.
Officers, who were working an apparent unrelated traffic crash nearby, were approached by a citizen who reported seeing the victim’s body while taking trash to the dumpster. The victim, who was carrying only a Trinidad-Tobago ID in his pocket, is tentatively identified as a 26-year-old man with a Murfreesboro Pike address. He had sustained a gunshot wound to his head and was deceased at the scene. Efforts continue to positively identify him and notify next of kin.
Anyone with information about the man’s murder is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
