NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police responded to a shooting in the 2000 block of Mossdale Drive around 9:50 a.m. Saturday.

An arrest warrant for criminal homicide has since been issued against Juan Hernandez, 41, for the fatal shooting of his roommate, Jesus Camillo Perez, 33. Hernandez had received a three-year probated sentence in January for pointing a pistol at his four roommates during a July 2021 argument.

Another roommate reported hearing the gunshot before Hernandez drove away in a gray Nissan Altima with the Tennessee license tag 6S91T2. The car was reported stolen; it was taken without permission.

Police say that Perez called from a neighbor's house after he was shot in the abdomen. He was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he died.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Hernandez or the stolen Altima is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
