NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police said one suspect was killed and three others were arrested after an auto theft investigation in Antioch Friday afternoon.

Police say 17-year-old Terrance Goins died of a gunshot wound.  It is unclear if he shot himself or was shot by an accomplice.

Police said this all stems from a vehicle theft that happened two days ago.

The owner of a tan Oldsmobile '88 reported her vehicle stolen on Friday.  A GPS tracker on the vehicle led police to Ocean Front Circle.

Police said four people were in the stolen car.  At one point there was an interaction between police and the suspects. The stolen car ran into a squad car, trapping an officer inside. The officer was not hurt.

The four suspects then fled on foot.  

A K-9 unit, "Turbo" followed them into a nearby woods.

"The K-9 officer heard a shot in the wood line. K-9 "Turbo" apprehends one of the suspects back in the woods. As other officers get there, they see a second suspect down on the ground with a gunshot wound," said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron.

The man Turbo took down is 18-year-old Kendrick Murphy, according to police.  He was treated for dog bites and has since been released on a $15,000 bond.

Two other juvenile suspects were also found. None of them were injured.

Police said there were bullet holes in the stolen car, but it’s unclear when a shooting occurred. Aaron said no officers fired their weapons.
