Tyler Raybon, 20, also known as Tyler Tate, was arrested this morning at 824 Charlie Place by members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force.

In an interview with Metro police Wednesday, Raybon admitted jumping into a woman’s 2012 Ford Escape in the parking lot of the Kroger on Mt. View Road in an attempt to elude an officer. He allegedly forced the victim to drive off before pushing her out of the vehicle by the Kroger gas pumps. The suspect also told detectives that he had a gun in his backpack.

At the time of the carjacking, Raybon was being sought in connection with a home burglary Friday in LaVergne and outstanding warrants in Nashville. He was just recently added to the TBI's top 10 most wanted list.

Items from the carjacking were allegedly found and recovered in the Charlie Place residence and the victim’s vehicle was recovered on County Hospital Road.

Raybon was free on $500,000 bond at the time of Wednesday’s arrest for attempted criminal homicide after he allegedly shot a man multiple times during a January robbery. While free on bond, he is accused of burglarizing a house on Nashua Lane. Three days later, officers attempted to serve a warrant charging Raybon with the break in. He refused to stop his vehicle and during the pursuit, he removed a GPS monitoring device.

Raybon was discharged from Metro General Hospital Wednesday and faces multiple charges in Davidson County including carjacking, aggravated kidnapping, evading arrest, aggravated burglary and failure to be booked.

Carmakers are to blame. They manufactured a product that was an attractive nuisance. Verily, I say, the car must have called this man over and begged him to steal. How did we, as a society, fail this man?

The lady should have had a concealed carry permit and a GUN. This is the only way to stop these career criminals. Bang, bang end of story. One less hood rat. A little paperwork and the mother can bury the son she didn't spend the required time raising....
