CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Clarksville Police are investigating what led up to the death of a 22-year-old man on the side of the road.
The original call out to police was a possible crash with injuries. When officers arrived at Victory Road, they found that 22-year-old Taylor Hotzoglou had been shot.
Just after midnight Saturday, a passerby stopped and called police after finding a car that looked like it had run off the side of Victory Road. That driver called police after he said he could not wake up the man inside the car.
Two teenagers said they saw the car as they were walking to one of their home, next to where the car was found.
Tyler Biggs, 17, said the engine was running, music was playing and the hazard lights were blinking.
"I kind of glanced back and I saw someone's foot hanging out the side of the door, so I called him (my friend) and he looked over there and 30 or 40 seconds later the cops showed up," said Biggs.
When medics arrived, they determined Hotzoglou was already dead. Police have begun a homicide investigation.
Biggs' stepmother said she heard four loud pops earlier, but thought they were fireworks.
"It's all been going through my head, everything that went on last night. It's like maybe I could have possibly (helped), if I had gotten up and gone to see what happened," said Sabrina Biggs.
Hotzoglou was last seen near his home at The Residences, 1671 Fort Campbell Boulevard. Police are looking for information or anyone that may have seen the man's 2009 Subaru Impreza in the late evening on April 28 or early morning of April 29.
Police have canvassed the area and interviewed neighbors, but have not found the gunman.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Clarksville Police Detective Mike Ulrey at 931-648-0656, ext. 5483 or the TIPSLINE at 931-645-8477.
