The Metro Nashville Police Department officers are searching for Earnest Woodley (aka Earnest Moore), 39, in connection with a shooting that injured four people at a Madison-area apartment complex.

The shooting occurred earlier Friday afternoon at Brinkhaven Apartments off Brinkhaven Avenue in Madison. Police have issued warrants charging Woodley with four counts of attempted homicide and four counts of aggravated assault after he allegedly shot his girlfriend, Nicole Luke, 34, and her three daughters — two 14-year-old twins, Deona and Keona Luke, and Kierra Smith, 15.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said Moore fled on foot and was wearing a gray T-shirt, blue shorts and no shoes. Woodley is 5 feet 11 inches and weighs 190 pounds, and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Citizens with information about Moore’s whereabouts are asked to contact MNPD at 862-8600.
