GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) -

A Gallatin resident leaving home drove up to find a murdered man in his front yard Friday night. Carl Bost, 26, was shot and killed, leaving a grieving family to wonder what happened.

"He didn't deserve this," said Mary Starks, Bost's sister. "He was so smart. He loved everybody, looked out for everybody."

Saturday morning, friends gathered on Starks' porch in Gallatin, offering support and words of comfort one day after the murder of her brother. Family members called the young man from Knoxville 'Little Boss.' Bost had recently moved to Gallatin to be with his girlfriend and started a new job at Wendy's.

"I've got seven brothers and sisters," said Starks. "I had to call all of them."

"Let's solve it," said Gallatin resident Jesse Call. "Let's get it over with. Somebody's over here laughing because they shot him over here and shot him in the back."

Jesse Call said he was driving out of his Eastland Street home when he came across Bost's body on his driveway. Bost had been shot to death.

"I seen it was a human being," said Call. "I've seen bodies before. He was already dead. They came over and worked on him and everything, but he was dead."

Gallatin police believe Bost was shot somewhere else and ran to Call's driveway where he collapsed and died.

As an investigation into what happened continues. Starks said she wants her brother remembered as a good man with a heart for helping young people.

"The kids loved Bost," said Starks. "My kids loved Bost. He was starting to start a young foundation with this lady. Somebody knows something. I know they do. There's too many people up there."

Gallatin police add Tennessee Highway Patrol brought bloodhounds to the scene who brought them to several leads. The investigation continues.

"We would appreciate the public assisting us in identifying some details that may lead us to the person responsible for this homicide," Gallatin Police Spokesman Bill Storment said. "Anyone with information is urged to give us a call at 452-1313."
