NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Metro Police are investigating the shooting death of a 41-year-old Matthew Degnan inside his caretaker’s home in the 3800 block of Crouch Drive on Saturday night.
Police said a dark-colored sedan pulled up in front of the home and someone inside the car opened fire, striking the victim in the chest. Degnan, who needed full-time assistance, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.
Police said multiple shots were fired at the same home on Sept. 20. No one was struck in that incident. A neighbor that lives nearby didn't want to be identified but says they heard more than 10 shots be fired into the home. "It was about 8:20 or something like that. It was rapidly going off like an automatic gun or something.y You know, I don't know the difference between them, but I just know it was a lot of shooting. I could hear more than 15 shots," the neighbor said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
