NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police are searching for a 16-year-old boy wanted for the deadly shooting of a 50-year-old man.
Metro police say Adrian Cameron II is wanted for shooting and killing 50-year-old Josh Evans, whose body was recovered from the Cumberland River on September 13.
Cameron’s father, 47-year-old Adrian Lamont Cameron, was shot and killed by Metro SWAT officers Saturday night at the Days Inn on Percy Priest Drive.
Cameron was wanted for questioning regarding Evans’ murder. He was also known to possess high-power guns and police wanted to question him to see if his weapons had anything to do with Evans’ murder.
When the door to Cameron’s room opened, a woman came out and was immediately taken to safety by responding SWAT officers. Cameron then came to the door with a high-powered pistol and fired multiple shots, causing SWAT members to return fire, according to investigators.
Police say 16-year-old Adrian was reportedly in his father’s motel room earlier Saturday and may have left the room with weapons in his possession.
