NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro Police are investigating an overnight shooting that left two people dead and two others wounded.

Investigators said the shooting happened at around 12:40 a.m. Saturday at Club Wyndham Nashville, a condominium complex located in the 2400 block of McGavock Pike.

When officers arrived, they found 18-year-old Tyler Holt who had been shot and killed inside a condo. Holt played high school football at Stratford High, and his former high school coach tells News 2 Holt was heading to junior college in January to play football. On Saturday, the school spray painted his old jersey on the field in his memory.

“This is the quieter side of Nashville, we thought, versus downtown so that makes you think a little bit,” said Sue Sapienza visiting from New York.

Sue and her husband Paul, who are staying at a nearby campground, say they did not hear any gunshots in the middle of the night, but they did hear a lot of motorcycles. Other neighbors reported seeing police cars surrounding the property Saturday morning and say this is very out of the ordinary.

After police found Holt’s body, a short time later they found the second victim at the intersection of McGavock Pike and Lumar Lane. Metro police identified him on Monday in a release. Through fingerprints, police named the second victim as 29-year-old Quantez Coleman.

Despite interviewing several people at the scene, police are still unsure what exactly happened and how the two victims were involved with each other.

No arrests have been made.
