NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A man was shot and killed on Saturday morning near the intersection of Keeley Drive and Haywood Lane in Antioch, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Kelvin Stowers Jr., 26, died after he was allegedly shot inside a vehicle. Police said the suspect(s) left his body in the street and drove off.

One woman said she heard and saw law enforcement lights and sirens as they responded to the scene. She said her neighbor witnessed the incident and shared information within a neighborhood app.

“[The neighbor] looked out the window and saw the driver’s outside door open and nobody in the driver’s seat,” the woman said as she recalled the conversation inside the Ring Neighborhood. “Then the driver came back and jumped in the car and took off.”

Kelvin Stowers' body was left in the street early Saturday morning in Antioch.

The woman said she heard gunshots several times along Keeley Drive and that it was unnerving to know this happened yards away from her home. She shared her condolences to the victim’s family.

“No matter what the situation was, that was somebody’s loved one,” the woman said. “And I just feel sad all the way around. And I hope the person gets Justice, and I hope it comes swiftly.”

Anyone with information about Stowers’ death is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers can remain anonymous and qualify for a $5,000 reward.
