NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Late Thursday night Metro Nashville police officers responded to a shooting at the Fallbrook Apartments on Dellway Villa Road.

Officers from the East Precinct found 26-year-old Antoine Hayes shot in his chest. He was taken by ambulance to Skyline Medical Center where he died.

Cell phone video from apartment residents showed the chaos that ensued after the shots rang out. This was at least the second shooting at Fallbrook Apartments in the last year.

Haye’s death marks almost 70 homicides in Metro Nashville so far this year. His family says he was a caring friend, father, son, and brother who will be missed.
