A man turned himself in on Monday, Oct. 22, for a shooting that happened at an IHOP in Nashville on Friday, Oct. 19. NBC News Channel 4 in Nashville published a story about the incident.
23-year-old Larico Nelson walked into South Precinct in Nashville on Monday, Oct. 22 and told police that he was the one who had fatally shot 32-year-old Kevin L. Stewart. Nelson said that he shot Stewart in self-defense.
Per Nelson, the incident occurred after Stewart had approached Nelson’s Audi SUV wondering who was banging on Stewart’s car window. Nelson said that a woman had been banging on car windows on Friday night looking for her cell phone.
The woman had no connection to Nelson or his friends, but Stewart mistakenly connected Nelson and the woman. Stewart produced a gun and threatened to shoot Nelson. That’s when Nelson raised his firearm and shot Stewart.
Nelson then drove away. Although Nashville Police failed to recover a gun, multiple witnesses claim that they saw a firearm lying on the ground next to Stewart.
Authorities said the investigation remains open.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
