MADISON, Tenn. (WSMV) - Metro Police identified the victim who was killed near Madison Park a few weeks ago, and now have a man in custody.

Police were called to the 500 block of North Dupont Avenue in Madison just after 7 p.m. on Jan. 4 and found a man dead with several gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of his vehicle.

The Metro Nashville Police Department confirmed on Jan. 5 that Eric Baker, 19, was the victim.

Police said a witness heard gunfire and came to the park to see what was going on. The witness told police they saw a dark-colored sedan leaving the scene.

Over 100 shell casings were found at the scene, however, police believe the vast majority stemmed from New Year’s Eve.

Metro police charged Mohamed Kulolu, 18, with criminal homicide on Jan. 18 in connection to the shooting. Kulolu is currently being held without bond.
