Man Found Shot To Death In Cheatham County Home

JOELTON, Tenn. - Several people have been held for questioning after a man was found shot to death inside a Cheatham County home.

The call came in at 6:47 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Chapel Hill Circle in Joelton.

Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office officials said a caller told dispatchers someone had been shot.

Deputies arrived and secured the scene. A male was found dead in the home with gunshot wounds. 

One resident said she's lived in the Joelton neighborhood for more than 40 years, and crime has gotten worse there.

"I said, 'Has there been a wreck?' Because there were cars everywhere, and he said, 'No, it’s something a whole lot worse than that,'" said Barbra Binkley.

The victim's identity was not known. Four people were being held for questioning.  

Officials said they believe the victim and suspect both knew each other.
