NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)  – Police said attempted robbery appears to be the likely motive for a fatal shooting in a South Nashville parking lot Tuesday night.

It happened at the Dollar General Market in the 5400 block of Nolensville Pike just before 8 p.m.

Police said the investigation revealed that Atanacio Comacho-Cedillo left his nearby apartment and was walking on Hickoryview Drive toward Nolensville Pike when he was confronted by two people who were parked in a side parking lot at the Dollar Store.

During the confrontation, the 52-year-old was shot.

Police said the Comacho-Cedillo’s wallet and cellphone were found on him, which suggests the suspects didn’t get anything from him.

Police are working to identify the two suspects.
