NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — One week after a driver was killed in a shooting along Briley Parkway, Nashville authorities announced they arrested the victim’s former coworker for murder.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, 46-year-old Gerges A. Youssef was driving his black Honda CR-V south on Briley Parkway just before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 28 when he came under fire near Karen Drive.

Officials said Youssef’s vehicle, which had multiple bullet holes on both sides from the shooting, hit a guardrail and went off into a grassy area before coming to rest on Envious Lane.

Police said Youssef — who had left work shortly before the shooting and was within a mile of his home — was brought to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he later died.

Then, on Friday, May 5, authorities said 62-year-old George Megalaa of Nashville, was taken into custody outside his Mooregate Drive home in connection with Youssef’s death.

According to Metro Police, the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between the two men, who used to be coworkers.

Surveillance footage from a Briley Parkway business reportedly showed a white Volkswagen SUV — which is the same type of vehicle Megalaa drives — speeding away from the area just after the shots were fired.

In addition, Megalaa’s cellphone records proved that not only was his phone near Youssef’s Goodlettsville workplace the afternoon of the shooting, but it also traveled the same route as Youssef.

An arrest warrant charging Megalaa with criminal homicide was issued the night before detectives took him into custody.
