NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A man caught walking down Broadway in downtown Nashville carrying an AR-15 and magazines of ammunition.
Calls about 63-year-old Michael Ray Jenkins poured into the 911 center as he was seen walking down the crowded street armed to the teeth around 10:30 p.m.
They described a man with long hair wearing a tan hat on Broadway carrying the military-style rifle.
Metro Nashville Police officers canvassed and flagged down by folks telling them which way the gunman had traveled.
Officers found Jenkins with the AR-15 rifle in an alley behind 1641 Patterson Street.
Jenkins, who has a history of burglarizing cars, broke into a vehicle parked at the DawgHouse Saloon on Demonbreun Street, found the AR-15 and ammunition magazines, stole them and started walking.
Jenkins was also found to be carrying a bent screwdriver and other items from the vehicle.
He was charged with auto burglary, possession of a burglary tool, and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon. He was jailed in lieu of $24,000 bond.
