NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police are investigating after a 32-year-old man was found shot to death in a car near downtown Nashville late Tuesday night.

Officers responded around 11 p.m. to Morrison Street after they said a passing motorist called to report seeing a man slumped over in the driver’s seat of a car. The car was on the wrong side of the street and had hit another parked vehicle, the caller explained.

When police arrived, they said they located David Hernandez, a 32-year-old Smyrna man, dead inside of the vehicle with gunshot wounds to his head. His foot was still on the gas pedal, according to investigators.

Evidence suggests the gunshots were fired from inside of the vehicle, police said.

No arrests have been made, as of Wednesday afternoon.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
