A 20-year-old man was shot and killed during a robbery attempt Monday night at the Stewarts Ferry Apartments on Grove Creek Avenue in Donelson.

According to police, Kendrick Edwards was shot in a breezeway at the apartment complex while attempting to rob resident Joshua Jones.

Jones, 18, told police he opened his apartment door to take out the trash when he was confronted by at least two men who tried to rob him at gunpoint.

A struggle ensued and Jones was able to gain control of one suspect's gun.

Jones told police he shot Edwards and then retreated to his apartment.

The other suspect or suspects fled the scene.

Police said detectives are pursuing meaningful leads as they work to identify the other person or persons with Edwards.

Jones was fully cooperative with police and no charges have been placed against him.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro police or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
