NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Metro Police are investigating a deadly shooting in North Nashville. 

Police say the shooting happened in the 2000 block of Ed Temple Boulevard at the Village on the Green apartment complex around 7 p.m. One male victim, later identified by Metro PD as 37-tear-old Darrelle Groves, was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Shortly after, another victim showed up at TriStar Summit Medical Center with a gunshot wound in the buttocks, received treatment, and was released. That victim was identified as 20-year-old Tyontez Moore.

Authorities say they found evidence inside a vehicle at the scene and have detained several witnesses who were inside an apartment where the shooting is believed to have happened. 

Police have been interviewing witnesses about the shooting, and continue to delve into the details of the incident.

Metro Detectives also reported a strong odor of marijuana in the apartment, and say this leaves open the possibility that the shooting could have been drug related.
