NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A deadly weekend shooting in south Nashville could be a case of self-defense.

Investigators said Frederick Poston was killed by an ex-girlfriend on Saturday night at an apartment on Yelton Court.

When officers arrived, they found Poston dead inside.

A resident, Ltuanya Ballard, told police and neighbors that she shot him during a fight.

"She was screaming 'Dial 911!' you know," said an unidentified neighbor. "I got down here and she was saying that she shot him and that he wouldn't stop. 'He wouldn't stop coming, so I shot him.'"

Police have not filed any charges in the case, which remains under investigation.
