Shorish Faraj

Metro police have identified the man fatally shot outside of an apartment at 200 Paragon Mills Drive Tuesday night as 28-year-old Shorish Faraj, of Shawn Drive.

Someone gunned down Faraj — who was recently named in an injunction filed against Kurdish Pride Gang members — along with his girlfriend, 46-year-old Guadalupe Garcia, outside of her apartment.

Police received a call of shots fired at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, and when they arrived at the scene found the two shot. They were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where Faraj died and Garcia was listed in stable condition Wednesday.

Detectives don’t yet have a motive in the shooting but are looking for a car described as a gray or silver Impala with a spoiler, possibly driven by a black man with dreadlocks.

Anyone with information about Faraj’s murder can call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

Rest In Peace Shorish, you will be greatly missed by many. Shorish was a great person with a big heart. He'd give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. It's sad that someone with so much life to live was taken from us so early. Such a senseless and cowardly act. My heart goes out to his family and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Shorish, you will live in our hearts forever, you will be remembered and thought of every day, and until we meet again Rest in Peace my brother.

Unfortunately, there are people in this world who decide to take Gods work into their own hands. People who think they have a right to place judgement on people that they have never even met before and have no idea. People who can hide behind a computer and make shameful comments about someone losing their life. It's very sad and I feel very sorry for you "scumballs" who think it's "Good News" that someone has lost their life. It's about as cowardly as being gunned down from behind. What a bunch of imbeciles. But your your judgement day will come and I'll leave that up to God.

iLoVeMyBaBiEs - It's known as "Live by the sword, die by the sword". Or, as the some might call it, an "NHI Case" - No Humans Involved. Gang bangers and drug dealers get banged themselves and, as long as innocent folks aren't caught in the crossfire, that's a good thing which benefits society. Whatever this guy's ultimate eternal destination is a matter between himself and God. No person can make that judgement, but we certainly can say this world is better off without him and others like him.

always remember - Let's see now? A gangster criminal is shot down by another gangster criminal. Yeah, that's a regular "mystery", ain't it? Maybe it will be an episode of the TV show "Cold Case" in the 2057 season? The city of Nashville welcomed and supported Kurd refugees and, in return, we get this KPG playing "shoot 'em up" on our streets. Yes, I'd say our sympathy is in rather short supply.

For all of u ****ers that didnt know him shut ur ****ing mouth. Get a ****ing life and get off the ****ing computer. Ya didn't ****ing know him so don't ****ing sit here and talk shit. He was a great friend a great brother and a great son. So **** all of u that have anything negative to say about him. And FYI he was never in KPG. He hung around them and that was it. Ya don't know anything. When this happens to a loved one of urs then ull know how hard this is. So **** all of you. I hope who ever has anything negative to say will burn in hell.

By: FaceBook:Emmett... on 7/21/12 at 7:21

RestinPeace - I guess for a moron who thinks speaking in "text" is English you probably think of yourself as "literate". Sensible people don't care about criminals killing each other as long as innocent people aren't caught in the crossfire. I think of it as an "NHI" - No Humans Involved - killing.

By: RestinPeace on 7/21/12 at 8:28

RestinPeace - This is kind of fun watching you show your stupidity over and over, but I really have things to do.

I never knew Shorish personally, but am very close to the Faraj family. They are some of the greatest people I have ever met. They are all extremely goal-oriented, caring and loving, and have higher standards than most Americans that are living in this country. And YES they speak English. I am a white male, born and raised in America, and don't know where I would be without the Faraj family. Everybody leaving hateful comments: I really hope you comfortably lay your head down at night after picking apart a family that you don't even know via the Internet. Do you really not have a life to the point that you created an account on a random website to shit-talk a group of people who moved here for a better life? Why is it that they are back to square one AGAIN by being emotionally and physically abused by ignorant people that live in this country? THIS is EXACTLY what makes our country SO disgusting at times. Wake up, America. Educate yourselves about Kurdistan and the terror that country went thru. There will always be bad people in this world. There will always be gangs. Before attacking Kurdish people and the MINOR flaws, take a step back and realize that Gangs have been an issue since the beginning of time: White, Latino, Black, etc.. But rise above the hate. Don't label an entire group of people because of a few rotten apples.. An innocent man lost his life last week, and his family continues to grieve as we speak. Show some respect, people. Shorish will never be forgotten by his loved ones. RIP.
