COPY-Police: Man identified as suspect in 27-year-old’s murder

Metro police have identified one of two men allegedly responsible for the murder of a 27-year-old man earlier this month.

Ricky Burgett Jr., 27, was shot and killed after two intruders; one identified as Aaron Dodson, entered his Welshwood Drive apartment and began demanding money on September 21.

Burgett was confronted by the men in the bathroom. The two suspects fled the scene.

Burgett was transported by private vehicle to Southern Hills Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Efforts to located Dodson have been unsuccessful, police said.

At the time of Burgett’s murder, Dodson was free on bond on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary stemming from an arrest in January.

Anyone with information on Dodson’s whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
