NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police are investigating a shooting in Nashville that left one man dead in his caretaker's house on Saturday night.

The shooting took place around 8 p.m. at the 3800 block of Crouch Drive in the Trinity Hills area.

Police say 41-year-old Matthew Degnan, who needed full-time living assistance was inside his caretaker's home when someone in a dark colored sedan opened fire on the house and hit Degnen in the chest.

Degnan is deemed an innocent bystander in what they are calling a "senseless murder."
