One man is dead and police are searching for multiple suspects Wednesday after a shooting outside the Obama Market on 40th Avenue North.

Police said an argument between Darrell Terrell, 27, and at least two other men started around 12:30 p.m. inside the market before the storeowner told the men to leave. Outside, the men got into a physical fight and a witness told police one of the men pulled a gun and shot Terrell.

The suspects ran, and Terrell was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died late Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, Terrell had three previous felony convictions for selling cocaine.

Police urged anyone with information concerning this shooting to call North Precinct detectives at 862-7901 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
