NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man has been charged with criminal homicide in connection with Saturday morning’s deadly “road rage-related” shooting along Bell Road, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.
Authorities said the investigation shows that 22-year-old Caleb Harney of Murfreesboro, was driving a Nissan Altima on Bell Road toward the Hickory Hollow area shortly before 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14 when there was a “roadway altercation” with a Chevrolet Camaro.
The Camaro reportedly cut off the Altima, so Harney started following the Camaro, but the driver of the Camaro slammed on the brakes, causing the Altima to rear-end the Camaro.
After that, the Camaro sped off, Harney followed it, the Camaro hit another vehicle near Brookview Estates Drive, the Camaro veered off the road, and then the Altima also veered off the road.
According to officials, Harney said a passenger got out of the Camaro and started yelling and cursing.
Then, when Harney got out of the Altima, the passenger — later identified as Olabode Enitan, 30, of Nashville — reportedly grabbed him around the waist like he was going to slam him to the ground. At that point, Harney pulled a pistol from his pants and shot Enitan, fatally wounding him.
Harney hid the gun in a nearby field before police arrived, but detectives managed to recover it, authorities said. Meanwhile, there were no weapons found on Entinan.
As for Harney, he is in jail on a $100,000 bond, officials said.
