A 19-year-old man has been charged with criminal homicide in a fatal shooting that happened in 2014.

Authorities with the Metro Nashville Police Department said 19-year-old Timothy Robinson was charged with both criminal homicide and especially aggravated robbery for the fatal shooting of 31-year-old Nathaniel Kelly.

Kelly was killed around 11 a.m. November 9, 2014 in the 1800 block of 14th Avenue North.

According to reports, Robinson was facing the murder count in Juvenile Court because he was 17 years old at the time of the shooting.

Officials said those with the District Attorney’s Office have been expected to seek to transfer the case to adult court.

Robinson was already in the Metro Jail on unrelated adult charges.

Authorities confirmed Robinson was a co-defendant of 21-year-old Damion Perrin who was charged in June 2015 with Kelly’s murder.

An investigation showed Robinson and Perrin allegedly plotted to rob and shoot Kelly who was involved in a drug trade.

When Kelly drove up to the scene, multiple shots were fired at him.

He was found dead in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. A bag of marijuana and cash were found inside the car.
