Suspect in silver truck wanted for flashing gun at man laughing in parking lot
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police detectives are attempting to locate a suspect who reportedly threatened a man at gunpoint for laughing with a friend while sitting in a truck outside a store earlier this month.
The incident happened on May 9 in the parking lot of a Sherwin-Williams store in the 2400 block of 8th Avenue South. The unidentified male victim was sitting in his truck when a man driving a silver or gray newer model Chevrolet Silverado pulled into the lot near him.
The victim says that he was “joking around with a friend” when the man from the Chevrolet confronted them, saying, “You think this is funny? You want to die?” before brandishing a pistol, according to Metro police. The suspect drove off shortly after the altercation.
The man in the truck is believed to be around 30-35 years old, standing roughly 5’8″ tall and weighing about 140 lbs. He has black hair with a fade haircut and a goatee, says Metro police.
