NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police are searching for a convicted murderer after a mother and her three teenage daughters were shot at a Madison apartment complex Friday.

Domestic Violence Detectives have issued arrest warrants charging Earnest Woodley, a.k.a Earnest Moore, 39, with four counts of attempted homicide and four counts of aggravated assault.

Police said around 2:40 p.m. Woodley, his girlfriend Nicole Luke, 34, her twin daughters Deona and Keona, 14, and her other daughter Kierra Smith, 15, arrived at the Brinkhaven Apartment complex located at 135 Brinkhaven Avenue in Madison.  Police said they stopped to say goodbye to a family member before moving to the Memphis area.

Police said an argument broke out, and Woodley shot Luke and the twins inside an apartment, and then shot Smith outside in a Chevrolet Traverse.

According to police, Woodley then fled the scene wearing a gray t-shirt, blue shorts and was barefoot.  He is 5'11'' and weighs 190 pounds and is considered armed and dangerous.  Anyone who has information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call 862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

The victims were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  All are in stable condition.

Police said Woodley has a lengthy criminal history, including multiple felony convictions in Shelby County.  His parole expired in 2010.
