NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Two people were killed in a shooting near a fast food restaurant in Davidson County.
The shooting call came from a Burger King in the 2300 block of Murfreesboro Pike in Antioch around 6:18 p.m. Tuesday.
Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said the shooting appeared to be the result of a drug deal in the fast food restaurant's parking lot that turned into an attempted robbery.
Police said the two men involved were in a Toyota Camry in the parking lot when they fatally shot each other. They have been identified as 26-year-old Marcus Lee and 20-year-old Ronnie Tunstill.
Reports stated Tunstill got into Lee's vehicle, and police said it's believed he attempted to rob Lee. That's when both men opened fire, shooting each other.
Authorities confirmed Lee died at the scene. Tunstill got into an SUV and the driver started to drive away, but then flagged down an ambulance. Tunstill was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.
Police said the driver of the SUV fled, and detectives have been working to identify him.
The area was taped off Tuesday as investigators gathered evidence. The investigation remained ongoing.
