NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 28-year-old woman told detectives she shot her boyfriend in the head Tuesday night at his East Nashville home because “something” in the residence “told her to do it,” a police report alleges.

According to an arrest warrant, Kristina Arnold called 911 around 9:45 p.m. and admitted she shot the 47-year-old man at a home on Fairwin Avenue near Inga Street.

When officers arrived, they said they found Jamar Pillow in bed with a single gunshot wound to his head. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was eventually pronounced dead, police revealed.
