NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Five people were charged with murder in connection to a shooting in Antioch early Saturday morning.

The shooting occurred around 1 a.m. in the parking lot of the Horizon Park Apartments on Packard Drive during what appeared to be a planned robbery.

Anastacio Taperia, 21, was shot and killed.  His friend fled the scene and called police from a parking lot in the 800 block of Murfreesboro Pike.

An investigation revealed that Taperia and his friends were at a bar located on Apache Trail where they met two women.

They left with the women and were followed by three men.

When they arrived to the apartment complex, the men appeared and allegedly announced they planned to rob Taperia and his friends.

Taperia was then shot and his friends fled in a vehicle, taking Taperia's body with them.

After officers questioned Taperia's friends on Murfreesboro Pike, they saw a red Dodge Charger with temporary tags drive by that matched the description the victims gave.

The suspects were captured after police conducted a traffic stop.

Candice Young, 23, Robin Griggs, 33, Stanley Hawkins, 26, Ronnie Palmer, 32, and Derrick Lance, 29 were all arrested.

The victims identified Lance as the shooter.

Detectives believe the five suspects pre-planned the robbery and used the bar to meet potential victims and lure them away.

Lance is being held in lieu of $2 million bond.

The other four suspects are being held in lieu of $1.5 million bond each.
