Metro Police are still trying to figure out exactly what happened in a fatal shooting just before 1 a.m. Tuesday in East Nashville.

Neighbors reported hearing almost a dozen gunshots, and heard a woman screaming on her North Second Street front porch.

When police arrived, they found a man shot multiple times on the porch. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Another man showed up a short while later at Skyline Hospital with gunshot wounds. He too died from the gunshots wounds.

Police said they believe the two men were at the same East Nashville location as there are two trails of blood coming from the home where the shots were fired.

The two victims both had lengthy criminal history and outstanding warrants, police said.

Police are still looking for the gunman.

The incident remains under investigation.
