The incident happened around 6:30 p.m. Monday at a residence on Saint Lewis Street.

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said 24-year-old Robert Richardson, who had recently moved to Nashville, drove to the residence to pick up his co-worker, 33-year-old Chad Miller. 

According to investigators, Miller got into an argument with one of the suspects before telling Richardson to go back to the car while he locked up.
