NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Nashville man has died nearly two weeks after he was shot when an argument got out of hand.

Metro Nashville Police officials say 25-year-old Halbert Poole III died Monday. He was shot Dec. 30 outside the Little Barn Market on Clarksville Pike.

Poole and his friend 25-year-old Donald Floyd got into an argument with two men outside the market at 5 p.m, according to police. The suspects drove off in a blue Nissan Altima. Poole and Floyd left in a separate vehicle, Floyd behind the wheel and Poole his front seat passenger.

But a short time later, Floyd reported that the men in the Nissan came toward them on Cedar Circle near the intersection of Meadow Road. As the vehicles passed each other, the suspects allegedly opened fire on the victims’ vehicle, hitting Poole twice.

Floyd was not injured. He then drove to a home on Lunn Drive from where police were called. Homicide detectives are pursuing leads in the investigation.
