Detectives are investigating after a 36-year-old man was shot to death in north Nashville on Saturday.
Michael Weaver was killed in the area of 14th Avenue North and Cockrill streets in what authorities believe was a drug deal gone bad.
The investigation indicates Weaver and a friend drove to the area late Saturday afternoon to make a drug transaction.
The suspect reportedly got into the back of their vehicle, pulled out a handgun and demanded cash from Weaver, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat.
Weaver refused and the gunman fired.
The suspect then fled, possibly in a red Dodge Neon.
Weaver’s friend drove him to Skyline Medical Center where he later died.
He is described as a black man with short hair who was wearing round glasses at the time of the shooting. He is approximately five feet, six inches tall and weighs around 220 pounds.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Metro police at 615-862-7901 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
