One person was killed and a second injured in a shooting on Cliff Drive.

The crime happened around 9:20 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 3100 block of the street.

According to reports, officers found two male victims at the scene. One of the victims, later identified as 40-year-old Frank Blair IV, passed away at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, police said.

The second victim had a gunshot wound to his arm. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Witnesses said a man wearing a hoodie pulled tight over his face and a mask approached the front porch and fired several shots into the living room through the storm door. The interior door was open.

Blair was sitting inside watching a football game with two friends, and one was the second victim whose identity has not been released.

According to police, "Blair had an extensive arrest history and was free on a $15,500 bond stemming from his September arrest on a felony gun charge and misdemeanor drug and trespassing counts.  North Precinct detectives will be looking closely at his background as they work to identify the gunman who killed him."

Further details were not available. Anyone with information has been urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
