A man is dead, and police are looking for the suspect, after responding to shooting near the city-county line early Sunday morning.
The victim was identified as Marquis Turner, 21, who was visiting from Illinois.
Turner was taken to the hospital by personnel with Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services where he was pronounced deceased. Detectives are currently trying to determine his identity.
Officers were initially dispatched to the 2400 block of Halls Hill Pike around 1:11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 8 to assist deputies with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office with a shots-fired call and to help disperse a large crowd. It was later determined the shooting victim was located near the corner of Halls Hill Pike and Journey Drive, within city limits so, Murfreesboro Police took over the crime scene.
The incident is under investigation by the Criminal Investigations Division. Detectives interviewed several possible witnesses, but at this time, no suspect information is available.
Investigators urge anyone else who may have been in the area at the time of the shooting and saw what occurred or could help identify the shooter to call Detective James Abbott at (629) 201- 5523 or call Crime Stoppers at (615) 893-STOP (7867).
