The Metro Nashville Police Department is seeking three suspects in two separate incidents earlier this week.

MNPD officers have sworn out warrants for aggravated assault against 22-year-old Walter Johnson who allegedly opened fire on his neighbors Clint Estes and his father, Steve Estes, in a breezeway of their apartments at 146 Burning Tree Drive during an argument Tuesday night.

The father and son were later treated and released from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Anybody with information on Johnson’s whereabouts can call Hermitage Precinct Investigations at 862-6993 or dial 74-CRIME.

South Precinct detectives were also looking for information regarding the two gunmen who robbed the Antioch Mapco at 765 Bell Road Wednesday. The suspects are described as black men in their 20s who both appear to be approximately 5 feet 7 inches and medium builds. They were driving a 90s model Ford Explorer SUV.

South Precinct detective Bill Stewart can be reached at 862-7688.
