Metro Nashville police said a juvenile — who was dropped off at Metro General Hospital with gunshot wounds Monday night died of his injuries.

Police were dispatched to the hospital at about 10:45 p.m. about Marterious Boyd, 16.

Boyd was dropped off at the hospital in a stolen gray pickup truck with a gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

MNPD officers were able to locate the pickup truck at 15th Avenue N. and Jo Johnston Avenue. The truck was taken via a stolen key fob last Friday evening from Keystone Avenue, police sad.

At this time detectives are trying to identify and question other occupants of the vehicle to determine how Boyd was shot.

The juvenile shot Monday night marks the 45th shot in Nashville this year — and the seventh fatal shooting of a child. Almost 10% of Metro's shooting victims are underage.
