Metro Police say three men, two of whom are jailed in connection with a West Nashville home invasion robbery, have been indicted in the shooting death of a market employee in December 2008.
The men, Rivera Peoples, 19, Antonio Harris, 22, and James Dowell, 19, all face charges of first-degree murder, police said.
Lindbergh Thompson was fatally shot outside Ace Market at 808 Bradford Ave.
Police say the three were preparing to rob the market when they confronted Thompson, an employee who was taking out the trash.
Thompson was fatally wounded and the three suspects fled, police said.
At the time of their indictment for Thompson’s murder, Peoples and Harris were already incarcerated on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping relating to the abduction of three persons from a home in the 4000 block of Harding Place in West Nashville in November 2008.
In that case, the homeowner, his 19-year-old daughter, and her 19-year-old boyfriend were forced into a vehicle and taken to two ATMs in Green Hills from where the suspects used the victims’ cards to withdraw money, police said. They were released unharmed in a subdivision near Hillsboro High School.
Harris is a convicted robber who received a seven-year sentence in 2006, police said. He received a four-year sentence for aggravated burglary in 2004. His parole was revoked following his arrest last December.
