Man Walking To Vehicle Gunned Down

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A man walking to his vehicle was gunned down and killed more than three months ago. Police have no suspects and a motive, but are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who has information about the case.

Terrance Jordan was walking to his vehicle, which was parked in the 1800 block of 12th Avenue North around 8:30 p.m. on April 29.

"The victim was attempting to get into his vehicle when someone came running up the street and shot him. As the victim fell the subjects turned and ran through a vacant lot toward Cephus Street," said Metro Police detective Rob Hanson.

Paramedics rushed to the neighborhood, but they were too late. Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene.

"At this time just speculation that may be the victim was robbed. We don't know for sure," Hanson said.

Police said when he was younger Jordan had a few problems with police, but recently he had been living a clean life with the exception of an occasional dice game.

"We received some information that he may have been gambling, playing dice. May have won a substantial amount of money in a dice game, but other than that we don't have anything concrete," added Hanson.

At the time of the shooting, other people were in the area. They think there are witnesses to the crime who have not come forward.

There's even a possibility that the killer jumped into a car and the driver may have information that can help police solve the crime.

Police said Jordan's family would like some answers.

"You know they're looking for closure to this case trying to figure out what happened to their son and their brother," said Hanson.
