33-year-old Muhamed Albarti is charged in the shooting of a man at Paul’s market, where he works. Albarti says he only “shot at the ground in his direction”, however, the victim suffered gunshot wounds in both of his legs. A handgun was collected from the scene, and security footage confirmed Albarti was the shooter. This is but the latest in a long series of problems at the Jefferson Street market – including the open sales of guns and narcotics, and the owner publishing video of himself brutally beating a man with a baseball bat.
Masi Kingston is the latest to be charged in series of Mapco thefts from 2019. He was served overnight as he was transferred into the Metro Nashville Jail. He will join two more co-defendants, Jerock Walker and Annisha Holmes, who were previously arrested, on their next court date to answer to the charges.
