Police Want To Solve Valentine's Day Nightclub Shooting
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Police are still trying to solve the Valentine's Day double shooting outside a nightclub in South Nashville. They hope someone has information that will lead them to the gunman.
It happened at 1 a.m. on February 14 in the parking lot of Club LAX on Murfreesboro Road in South Nashville.
"Two individuals had exited a black Chrysler 300 at Club LAX. As they were walking toward Club LAX, they noticed a fight at the door. They turned around and headed back and they were struck by gunfire," said Rick Heiman with the Metro Police Department.
One victim was hit in the foot, but the other victim was hit in the side paralyzing him for the rest of his life. There was a large crowd at the club, but police said they were unable to get a description of the shooter.
"At this time no one has come forward and given any information on the shooting," said Heiman.
Police are concerned about shots being fired in such a crowded area where any innocent bystander could have been hit. Investigators don't know if the victims were randomly hit by gunfire or if they were the targets of the shooters.
"There were numerous people in the parking lot, driving by. Anyone could have been struck by gunfire. We just want to find out who did this," added Heiman.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. You can also text the word CASH, and your message to CRIMES. Tips could earn you up to one thousand dollars in cash.
Crime Stoppers accepts tips through its website as well.
