Man Killed In Shooting At Nashville Apartment Complex

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - One man was killed and a woman taken into custody following a shooting at an apartment complex near Fisk University.

The shooting happened inside a resident just before 11 p.m. Thursday night at the Andrew Jackson Apartments on Blank Street in Nashville.

Investigators with the Metro Nashville Police Department said 23-year-old Deverya Rose admitted to shooting her boyfriend, 25-year-old Christopher Sims.

Rose told police she and Sims were fighting when he grabbed her by the hair and put a gun to her head. She said Sims then pushed her head to the floor.

When he set the gun down, Rose told investigators she picked it up and shot Sims one time in the chest. Sims died at the scene.

Police spent hours piecing together clues and said the evidence was consistent with Rose's claims of self-defense.

The case was sent to the District Attorney's Office to determine if charges would be filed.
