A man has died following an early-morning shooting from over the weekend in Clarksville.

The incident happened just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday in a business parking lot in the 2500 block of Whitfield Boulevard.

Clarksville police said they responded to the area after multiple 911 calls came in regarding a shooting. However, it’s unclear at this point what exactly happened.

More: 2 Shot After Alleged Attempt To Serve Warrants

Police said 24-year-old Jalen Johnson succumbed to his injuries Sunday. He and another person were apparently shot during an attempt to serve warrants.

Detectives said they’re still trying to sort out the details. They believe the incident stemmed from bail bondsmen attempting to serve warrants to a man in a Nissan. 

At some point, shots were fired and the Nissan fled from the scene – almost hitting two people. 

That’s when the bail bond agents got into separate vehicles and chased the Nissan on Fort Campbell Boulevard.

Authorities said the Nissan stopped around the 2400 block of Fort Campbell Boulevard. That’s when it was discovered that two men inside the Nissan had been shot.

Johnson was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. The second man was treated and released. 

Police said no charges have been filed at this time

Anyone with information should contact lead investigator Detective Anderson, 931-648-0656, ext. 5132.
