NASHVILLE, Tenn. - One man was killed and a woman was injured in what police called a targeted shooting on eastbound Interstate 24 in Nashville.
Metro Nashville Police officers said they were called to a crash with possible injuries at Briley Parkway around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Investigators said they found a vehicle with bullet holes in it. They also found 22-year-old Hassan F. Al Mutory and an 18-year-old woman inside the vehicle, a black Ford Edge.
According to the woman, they had left the Deja Vu strip club downtown, and a person from another vehicle opened fire on them, causing them to crash into a concrete barrier on the Briley Parkway exit ramp.
Al Mutory and the woman were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Reports stated Al Mutory had been shot in the head. He died at the hospital.
The woman was reportedly shot in the arm, and authorities said her injuries were non-life threatening.
Officials said they were working to gather information and added the details they gathered from the woman did not seem to match details they received from witnesses on the interstate.

Police were delving into Al Mutory's criminal past for more information. Al Mutory had received a nine-year sentence in May from an arrest in February 2016 for unlawful gun possession and possession of 188 Xanax bars for resale.
He also got a three-year sentence in January for a reckless homicide conviction stemming from an arrest in January 2015 that charged him in the August 31, 2014 fatal shooting of 20-year-old Carlos Gomez in Bellevue.
During that arrest in January 2015, Al Mutory allegedly rammed an unmarked police car and tried to escape, but he quickly surrendered. He was armed in that case with two pistols. He also possessed marijuana, cocaine, Oxycodone pills, and nearly $2,500 cash.
Anyone with information on Wednesday morning's fatal shooting of Al Mutory on the interstate has been urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
