Police spokesperson Kristin Mumford said the victim, later identified as Alajawon Dillard of Porter Road, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to his chest.

The shooter, 32-year-old William Davis, reported that he heard a knock at the door of his girlfriend's residence and was greeted by Dillard, armed with a pistol.

Both guns were recovered by police at the scene; however police are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the shooting.

Dillard is a convicted armed robber who received a three-year mostly probated sentence in April of this year.

Davis was convicted of felony marijuana possession in January 2011 and received a one-year probated sentence.
