NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Witnesses reported gunfire prior to an intended illegal drug transaction that claimed the life of a 33-year-old Nashville man.

The man, now identified as Chad Allen Daniel, was fatally wounded around 4:15 p.m. in the 1300 block of Hillside Avenue.

Daniel was in the front passenger seat of a Nissan Altima being drive by his 26-year-old friend.

The friend reported to police that he had arranged to buy drugs from a woman at the Hillside location.

Daniel remained in the car while his friend got out and approached the woman in the apartment building's breezeway.

Just as he reached her, the friend said a gunman suddenly appeared and demanded all of his money.

He threw down his wallet and ran back to the car, getting back behind the wheel as the gunman followed and approached the passenger side window.

The gunman again demanded money, and as the friend tried to pull away, the gunman shot and killed Daniel.

The friend drove from Hillside Avenue to Wedgewood Avenue where he found a police officer and asked for help at the intersection of Beech Avenue and Wedgewood.

Authorities are conducting interviews with 26-year-old friend and the woman who was allegedly making the drug deal.

The gunman is described as a black man with dreadlocks and teardrop tattoos on his face.

He is approximately five feet, seven inches tall, weighs approximately 140 pounds and was wearing a black shirt at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information about the gunman's identity or whereabouts is urged to contact the Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
