NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro Police are searching for a man who shot one person dead and left another seriously injured in North Nashville.  

The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Thursday on Booker Street between 28th Avenue North and Booker Street near the intersection of Lena Street.

Officials said 28-year-old Sidney Stuart from Madison was driving a Ford Explorer with one passenger on Booker Street when his vehicle was fired upon. The passenger was identified as 27-year-old Harold Carr from Nashville.

Witnesses said the shooting started in the middle the street. They told police there were around 10 shots fired.

Stuart was shot in the leg. Carr was also shot.

The SUV was fleeing the area at a high rate of speed when Stuart ran a stop sign and struck a Lincoln Town Car traveling on 28th Avenue North. The SUV hit the front of the Lincoln and rolled.

Marea Wade was inside of that Lincoln.

"They hit me and then the truck flipped. And I was still sitting there and the guy jumped out of the driver's side."  Wade said.

"He just kept going in circles and that's when he collapsed, and that's when the police came."

Stuart exited the SUV and started running away before collapsing.

Police said Carr was found dead inside the SUV. It was not clear if the gunshot injuries or crash caused his death.

The driver of the Lincoln was not injured.

The Metro Nashville Police Department, Nashville Fire Department and several ambulances were called to the scene.

Stuart was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was listed in critical but stable condition.

Police said Stuart had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for aggravated assault after allegedly firing shots at his girlfriend in August 2012. They planned to take Stuart into custody after his release from the hospital.

Witnesses reported seeing two gunmen fleeing the scene of the shooting on foot. Both were described as young black men who were wearing red at the time of the shooting.

The Metro Nashville Police Department's crime scene investigators unit was on the scene looking for clues. They were marking off all the spots on the street where the shell casings landed.

Police shut down 28th Avenue North and Batavia Street while they conducted their investigation.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME (742-7463) or text the word "CASH" along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES). They can also submit information online at nashvillecrimestoppers.com
