NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville police investigated a shooting that killed a woman in South Nashville Friday morning.

Officers were called to a home on Evelyn Drive just before midnight.

Police say the person who lives at the home told them he found a burglar in his garage, got his pistol, opened his living room window and looked outside.

He told police he saw the woman climbing out of a garage window.

The man told police he yelled for her to stop and shot the woman as they faced each other and she reached for something.

A backpack found lying next to the woman had several bags of marijuana that police say apparently came from the man's garage.

Police got a search warrant for the home and found about two pounds of marijuana, along with cash and another gun in the man's bedroom.

The man, 24-year-old Redear Haji, was arrested on drug and gun charges.
