NASHVILLE (WASMV) - A man has died from his injuries after being shot Saturday night in East Nashville.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, officers responded to a "shots fired" call on the 600 block of Dew Street around 7 p.m.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found 19-year-old Quincy L. Brown lying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the head.

Witnesses told police that just before the shooting, Brown had engaged in an argument near South 6th Street and Sylvan Street before leaving the area with a friend. 

A little while later, two male black suspects approached them and started shooting, hitting Brown. His friend ran away from the gunmen and was not injured.

Detectives recovered a handgun in the area they believe was used in the shooting.

Police said their investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Persons can provide information to Crime Stoppers anonymously and qualify for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
