NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has made a second arrest in connection with a shooting of a woman in Green Hills.
On Thursday, officers took 22-year-old Desmond Tyler into custody.
Investigators believe Tyler, along with 19-year-old Michael A. Green, who was arrested last week, attacked and shot a 26-year-old woman as she walked through a neighborhood on Esteswood Drive near Trimble Road on Jan. 30.
Tyler was taken into custody Thursday night on Merritt Street in Old Hickory. Information developed during the investigation, including a review of surveillance footage, helped identify Tyler as the second suspect in the shooting, according to a release.
According to Tyler’s arrest warrant, he grabbed the victim from behind and told her to “be quiet and don’t say anything.” She screamed before they took her belongings and shot multiple rounds at her body, according to Metro police. Tyler then reportedly ran back to the vehicle and fired additional rounds at the victim.
Tyler was charged with attempted criminal homicide, especially aggravated robbery, especially aggravated kidnapping and using a gun in the commission of a dangerous felony. He was booked into the Metro jail on a $915,000 bond.
