Questions remain 1 year later in Nashville teen’s death

July 5, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — As the one-year anniversary of a Tennessee teenager’s shooting death approaches, the search continues for the teen’s killer.

The Tennessean reports 15-year-old Jaezoine Woods was killed the evening of July 25, 2017 in a Nashville public housing development. Metro Nashville Police say an altercation broke out between Woods and several others in a parking lot and shots were fired. They say Woods tried to flee after being shot, but suspects got into a car, cut him off and began firing again. Woods collapsed in the street and later died.

In April police announced that a pistol seized from a marijuana dealer was linked to Woods’ killing. Police spokeswoman Kris Mumford says recent developments have been promising.

Anyone with information about Woods’ death is asked to contact the Metro Nashville Police Department.
