When police arrived, they said they located the body of Christopher Davis, a 21-year-old man from Madison, in the parking lot. Two other male shooting victims, ages 17 and 19, were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where officers said they were treated and released.

Detectives determined the three shooting victims were talking in the parking lot with three other people, when one of them pulled out a handgun and opened fire, striking Davis and the other two victims.

No arrests have been made and police only have a vague description of the gunman, according to investigators.

The fatal shooting was one of two reported minutes apart in Nashville Thursday morning. The other happened just after midnight on Alameda Street in West Nashville, where officers said at least one person was killed.

Anyone with information on either of the fatal shootings is urged to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
