NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Metro Nashville Police Department is continuing to search for a number of suspects who have been listed as the city’s “Top 10 Most Wanted.”
The list is updated every Wednesday on the Metro Nashville Police Department Criminal Warrants Division Facebook page, with several new faces making the list this week following a number of arrests.
At least eight wanted fugitives have been arrested since the MNPD began publishing the lists in mid-October— one of which turned himself in earlier this week. The six new suspects appearing on the list this week are wanted on charges ranging from rape to aggravated assault.
Those who appear on Nashville’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list are often considered violent offenders. Many charges also include homicide and crimes against children. Below are the suspects who made the list the week of Dec. 14.
1. Joe DeLeon
At number one, Joe DeLeon, 21, is considered this week’s “Top Most Wanted” fugitive, according to the MNPD. DeLeon is wanted on one count of criminal homicide in connection with the Nov. 25 shooting death of a teenager in a North Nashville church parking lot.
According to police, Antonio Rudolfo, 19, drove to the church around 4 p.m. and parked in the back of the lot. A second car was seen parking next to him. The driver got out and spoke to Rudolfo for several minutes before police said they got into an argument and shots were fired.
Rudolfo died at the scene. Police identified DeLeon as a possible suspect about two weeks later. According to the MNPD, he was last seen in Antioch.
