Parolee Terry McKissack, 20, who was convicted in 2008 for his involvement in a series of armed robberies in apartment complex parking lots on Nashville's south side, is back behind bars Friday, according to Metro police.

Police said McKissack was on of three gunmen involved in Wednesday night’s alleged hold-up of a man outside the victim’s Wallace Road apartment building.

McKissack, of Eisenhower Drive, has been charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault. He is being held in lieu of $200,000 bond.  

McKissack and the other two gunmen allegedly approached the victim as he returned to his apartment after taking out his trash. The victim, whom police did not identify, was forced into a maroon Chevrolet Impala at 10:20 p.m. The suspects allegedly drove off with the victim and robbed him at gunpoint. The victim managed to open the car door on Willard Drive near Wallace Road where he jumped from the vehicle. One of the suspects allegedly fired a shot at the victim, who was not struck or seriously injured. 

The victim called police and provided a description of the Impala. South Precinct Detectives Robert Swisher and Jarrad Rikal Thursday located the car at a fast food restaurant on Harding Place. Three persons, including McKissack, were taken into custody. Only McKissack is charged at this time. He was positively identified by the victim as one of the men who allegedly robbed him. 

Detectives are pursuing additional persons of interest.

How sad it is that the state of Tennessee cares so very little about public safety that it releases savage, wild animals from their cages only a few months after being convicted of violent felonies.
