Police are investigating after a 19-year-old man was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon in East Nashville.

Alajawon Dillard, 19, was shot just before noon near a residence in the 1600 block of Chase Street.

Police said a 32-year-old man answered the door at his girlfriend's house, when he was confronted by Dillard who was holding a pistol.

The man inside the home, who was also armed, fired at Dillard.

Investigators are still working to determine what led to the shooting and whether Dillard's fatal wound came from a gun fired by another man or was accidentally self-inflicted.

Charges have not been filed, but the investigation continues. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
