DETROIT, MI. (WKRN) – A 21-year-old man wanted for a deadly shooting at the Hermitage Inn on Lebanon Pike was arrested Wednesday by U.S. Marshals in Detroit, Michigan.
Metro police say Demetrius Blackwell-Esters reportedly met 23-year-old Andre Green, an acquaintance, at the motel on Friday night. The two got into an argument in a second floor hallway when, according to witnesses, Blackwell-Esters pulled out a gun, resulting in a struggle between the two men over the weapon.
Blackwell-Esters regained control of the gun and shot Green. He continued shooting as Green tried to run away.
Green died from his injuries and Blackwell-Esters is facing criminal homicide charges.
He will be returned to Nashville in the near future, according to police.
