NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police were called to a South Nashville motel for a homicide investigation.
The call came in early Friday morning at the motel located at 821 Murfreesboro Pike, not far from Interstate 24.
Police officials say 27-year-old Twuan West was shot and killed at the motel. The shooting happened when West was allegedly involved in a prostitution-related argument with another man and a woman.
The man and woman fled the motel in an SUV, according to police. They are believed to be locals, as a witness said he had seen them before.
Sky 5 flew over the scene and showed multiple police officers on scene. A portion of the parking lot has been roped off with crime scene tape.
