NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police say an 18-year-old, who is accused of robbing a realtor at gunpoint in East Nashville last week, turned himself in Tuesday morning.
Officers said Deontaye Gooch-Blacksmith stole a Toyota SUV from the realtor on Porter Terrace on July 20. The vehicle has since been recovered but police are still searching for Gooch-Blacksmith.

Gooch-Blacksmith has previously been arrested twice for aggravated robbery in 2019. He was also a subject in NewsChannel 5 Investigates' "Broken" documentary, which detailed how some violent juvenile offenders commit new crimes when they are supposed to be under the supervision of the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.
