NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 39-year-old man told officers he shot another man last week in North Nashville because he was disrespectful to a woman, a Metro police report states.
Travis Rogers was booked Monday afternoon into the Metro jail on a charge of aggravated assault.
Metro police said the victim was approached by Rogers and a female around 12:45 a.m. on June 12 in the area of Buchanan Street and Dr. DB Todd, Jr. Boulevard.
The female reportedly told Rogers that the victim had called her a “b***h.”
Rogers left and returned a few minutes later, armed with a handgun, officers said.
During a struggle, police said Rogers shot the victim in lower abdomen and right foot, then fled.
Once the 39-year-old suspect was taken into custody, he allegedly confessed to shooting the victim but claimed he did it in self defense.
Rogers did not have a valid gun permit, police said.
