Metro police detectives in the Hermitage Precinct seek the community’s help finding 19-year-old Terrell Lamont Booker, who they allege took part in a drug-related shooting on March 1.
Booker now faces warrants charging him with attempted murder and attempted especially aggravated robbery in the shooting on Village Green Drive in the Nashboro Village area that afternoon.
According to police, Booker and another man went to the apartment of 20-year-old Jerome Perkins to sell marijuana, but when Perkins opened his door and reached for money, Booker and his accomplice tried at gunpoint to rush inside.
Perkins managed to shut them out, but a shot was then fired into the apartment, hitting Perkins in the neck.
Police ask anyone seeing Booker, who was last known to have lived on Wildwood Drive in South Nashville, to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
The public can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com . Persons who contact Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
