NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have arrested a 26-year-old man in connection with a shooting that wounded a woman in East Nashville Thursday night.
Officers patrolling the area of Fourth and Fatherland streets reported hearing gunshots fired just before 9 p.m. As they responded, the officers said they saw Deandre Marsh running down South Fourth Street with a gun in his hand.
Police said they approached Marsh to detain him and noticed the gun was about two feet away from him under the back of a vehicle. When Marsh was questioned, officers said he claimed he had simply picked up the gun off the ground.
In the area where the gunshots were fired, police reported finding a woman with at least one gunshot wound. She was transported to a hospital, where her condition was not known.
