NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — One person has died following a shooting in the 300 block of Hickory Hollow Terrace.

Metro police said a 31-year-old Anthony Lovell Carter was shot and killed on Monday afternoon.

Before the shooting, Carter and three of his friends went to the apartment complex to speak with 26-year-old Tracy Jackson who lives in the apartments. Carter wanted to speak to Jackson because he allegedly owed him $100.

After the discussion, Carter and the three friends got inside a BMW SUV to leave the apartment complex. When the SUV was stopped at the gated entrance, Jackson pulled up behind in his own vehicle.

A short altercation began before Jackson pulled out a handgun and fired at Carter.

Police report that Carter was shot multiple times while his friends shot back at Jackson in self-defense.

Jackson was transported in a private vehicle to a local hospital before he was transferred to Skyline Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Jackson was taken into custody after his release from the hospital, on a criminal homicide warrant.

Carter was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center after the shooting where he was pronounced dead.
