Another person is dead in an East Nashville shooting.
If I'm being honest, I have to say I'm shocked at the uptick in violence in East Nashville. It's become the hippest (and some would say most gentrified) part of Nashville. But the violence there lately has got us all wondering if the east side has changed for the worse. New and renovated homes, foodie restaurants, and hipster coffee shops are now being blocked off by police tape.
Police say a gunfight between 2 cars broke out Tuesday night around 6:30pm on McFerrin Avenue at the intersection near The Pharmacy Beer Garden and Mas Tacos restaurant. One bullet hole went through the glass window of The Pharmacy.
Occupants inside a Chevy Impala were in gunfight with a man in a black Mustang. Police identified the dead man as Deangelo Knox, 25. As a result of the gunfight, Knox crashed his car. Reports say he was shot by a security guard from The Pharmacy after Knox left his car and came towards the officer with a gun.
This is the gun police retrieved from Deangelo Knox.
Comments in a Reddit post describe the scene from someone who claims to be an eyewitness:
I was across the street when it happened. There was a lot of fire back and forth between the two parties and at least 30 people standing around on the street at Pharmacy and Mas Tacos. It's amazing no one else was injured or killed.
