Murder In North Nashville Unsolved Since May

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A man was shot and killed outside his duplex. The murder happened in the 2400 block of Heiman Street in North Nashville. There may be other witnesses who have not come forward.

It was Sunday, May 31 at 9 p.m. A neighbor heard a gunshot and went outside to investigate. He found 23-year-old Carl Reed lying on the ground behind his duplex.

"We determined Mr. Reed received a phone call. There were two males that were supposed to come to his residence," said Larry Brown, Metro Police Department.

Police said the men arrived at the duplex and shortly afterward Reed was shot. Police have not identified the man.

"One male was seen running from the residence in an alley next to the residence," said Brown.

Paramedics rushed Reed to the hospital where he died during surgery. Family members told police Reed had been in prison a couple of times.

They did not know if he was in any trouble at the time he was killed. Police said what was important was to capture the killers off the street.

"Anytime you have random gunfire in a space like that there's a possibility of others getting injured, bystanders being injured and we'd really like to get those folks off the street," said Brown.

Police believe there was a good possibility that other people witnessed the shooting and have not come forward. If you have information about the murder of Carl Reed call Crime Stoppers at 74-Crime.
