Update: Police release name of dead burglary suspect. Nathan Lee Wallace, 19, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
One man is dead and three others were arrested following a home burglary Thursday morning on Logwood Briar Circle in south Nashville.
Police responded to the burglary call just before 10 a.m., and as Officer Terrence Bradley pulled over the getaway vehicle near Edmonson Pike and Old Hickory Boulevard, a 19-year-old suspect in the backseat apparently committed suicide with self-inflicted gunshot wound. The three other suspects exited the car and surrendered.
One suspect yelled that his friend had been shot, and that’s when officers discovered that the 19-year-old was dead from a gunshot wound to the head. A pistol was recovered beside the victim. The other suspects said the man shot himself when police pulled in behind them.
The three other suspects have now admitted to burglarizing the Shell market on Crossings Place Wednesday, as well as to at least two other Nashville residential burglaries, one residential burglary in Brentwood, and a recent robbery at a Goodlettsville Waffle House.
The three suspects who face a number of criminal charges are: Evan Quinn Bellamy, 19, of Antioch; Anthony James Torrez, 20, of Madison; and Anthony Trey Blackwell, 19, of Madison.
The name of the dead suspect is being withheld pending notification of next-of-kin. He was awaiting adjudication on a home burglary charge in Davidson County Criminal.
