NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Nashville Police officials are searching for convicted felon, 27-year-old Kevin M. Horner in connection to the April 10 murder of 33-year-old April Wilson.

Horner allegedly fired a gun multiple times outside Wilson's apartment shortly before 10 p.m., which hit and killed her. Police say he had visited an apartment near Wilson’s in the past and got into an argument with someone at the Wilson’s home.

The next day he reportedly pulled a gun on a driver who rear-ended him on the Ellington Parkway exit ramp to Trinity Lane. Horner ran away from the scene, leaving the gun inside the car. Officers searched the vehicle and found spent shell casings, which scientists at the MNPD crime laboratory determined matched shell casings recovered from the murder scene.

He's wanted on a felony aggravated assault charge in that incident and the criminal homicide charge in Wilson's murder.

Horner was convicted of robbery in August 2018 and received a mostly probated six-year sentence. He was also convicted of misdemeanor domestic assault and vandalism in March 2019.

Anyone who may see Horner or who knows where he may be was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
