Police have released the identity of the man who was fatally shot in Clarksville Monday night.  

The incident happened just before 8 p.m. at a home in the 800 block of Isaac Drive.

Officials with Clarksville police said the victim was identified as 26-year-old James Brown. 

Authorities described a black male who was wearing an orange shirt with short braids. That man was seen running from the home and fleeing the scene in a silver vehicle.

Investigators said, due to evidence, they do not believe this incident was random. They added it possibly stemmed from the sale of illegal narcotics, which meant they do not believe there's a continued threat to the Isaac Drive area or the public. 

Detectives said the investigation remains ongoing. 

Anyone with information should call Detective Michael Ulrey at 931-648-0656 ext. 5483 or CrimeStoppers at 931-645-8477.
