Metro Police say a verbal altercation may have led to a fatal shooting Tuesday afternoon in East Nashville.

Hummm another murder in a public housing complex in Nashville. Have to wonder what ACORN's relationship is with MDHA in placing these criminals in public housing places illegally?

ACORN? Give it a rest!
That is irrelevant as is your comment about criminals in housing. It does not say that the resident, Newsome, was a criminal.

eastnashville, if you look it up, Newsome only has a couple of misdemeanors on his record. making some mighty big assumptions, aren't we?
