Thursday's crime log

Tennessean Man found shot to death A man was found fatally shot in a vehicle overnight at an apartment complex in the Nashboro Village area, Metro Police said. Officers received a shots-fired call just after 1:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Metro Police Capt. Ken Walburn. When officers investigated, they were told by a resident that a car had crashed, and officers found a deceased body in the driver’s seat, slumped over, with the seat belt still on. The car had crashed into an area of shrubbery, Walburn said. No motive has been established, nor have any witnesses to the shooting been located. Police were still on the scene early this morning, Walburn said. The man, whose identity is being held until next of kin is notified, did not live at the complex, according to the initial investigation. But police said the victim was at the complex earlier in the day grilling out. It hasn’t been determined whether the man was shot while driving the vehicle or beforehand, Walburn said. “It’s a wide-open case, we don’t know if it was a robbery or a drug deal,’’ Walburn said. The call came from Village Green Drive, according to dispatch. Anyone with information is asked to call 74-CRIME.
