Police say 19-year-old Jahzeel Gayle came to see another man, supposedly to pay some money that was owed. While there, he reportedly racked the slide of a handgun and demanded the victim delete a video he had recorded of him, and CashApp him $100 or he would shoot him.
The two men have known each other since middle school, according to the victim, and this event happened on June 3rd. Since Gayle fled the scene immediately after the victim sent him the money at gunpoint, a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Jahzeel N. Gayle, II, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail at 12:12 p.m. on July 15th, charged with felony aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. He is free on a $50,000 bond and is represented by attorney Marie Stacey.
