NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One is dead after a shooting that took place in Nashville Friday night, Metro Nashville police say.

The incident took place around 8:30 p.m. Friday on Charlotte Avenue and 42nd Avenue North.

Witnesses told police that 23-year-old Miguel Ontiveros III was racing a pickup truck when someone in the truck shot at his Hyundai Sonata.

Ontiveros was struck by gunfire and crashed into a WeGo bus shelter. He died on the scene.

The truck - a Nissan - also crashed, before it continued to flee toward I-40. That vehicle was located a short time later on the shoulder of I-40 East near the I-440 junction.

The Nissan truck and the Sonata were both taken the the MNPD crime laboratory for testing.

Anyone who has information on the shooting or saw Ontiveros Friday before the incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers can remain anonymous.
