Authorities have not charged a convenience market clerk after he fatally shot a convicted carjacker he said tried to rob him Wednesday night.
Sm Mazahir Hamadani, 59, was working at the Kwik Tobacco Market at 619 Millwood Drive, when he said 25-year-old William England charged the counter and held scissors to Hamadani’s throat. According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, Hamadani said he feared for his life, pulled a pistol that was in his pocket and shot England one time.
England died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was on probation after receiving an eight-year sentence for carjacking in 2009.
Hamadani wasn’t detained after being interviewed by authorities.
The District Attorney’s Office will review the completed case file at the conclusion of the investigation.
