NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The suspect accused of killing a man and injury his wife during a robbery at their home was shot by law enforcement in West Texas.

Metro Police officers responded to a home on the 200 block of Cherokee Road Friday afternoon.

A couple in their 50s were on their back porch enjoying the evening when a man in his 20s approached them. He said he was lost and needed directions. He then attacked the couple, stabbing them with a sharp object.

The woman was able to get in the house, lock the door behind her and run through the front door. She was found in the street, bleeding from her neck and her husband was found seriously injured on the back porch. Both were sent to the hospital with critical injuries, but the man later succumbed to his injuries.

The couple's 2010 Gray Toyota Camry with TN Tag NP5937 was missing.

Once at the scene officers found an abandoned vehicle from Connecticut in the street outside the home. Both doors were open and no one was inside.

Metro Police say the abandoned Subaru is registered to 34-year-old Peter Bohning of Kent, Connecticut. His whereabouts are unknown at this time.

Metro Nashville police have issued arrest warrants against Bohning, charging him with murder and attempted murder.
