Jordan Goodlett

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An 18-year-old from Atlanta is wanted for criminal homicide and attempted criminal homicide in the March shooting at Cook-Out.

Jordan Goodlett is accused of shooting Ryan Weaver, 19, and Murray Gross, 25, outside the Midtown restaurant around 3 a.m. on March 1.

Weaver was critically injured in the parking lot and Gross was killed after police say an altercation took place inside the restaurant.

An investigation found that during the argument, Weaver believed Goodlett was reaching for a gun so he ran into the bathroom.

Goodlett is accused of following him and shooting Weaver once while inside the bathroom and again inside the main part of the restaurant.

Weaver suffered gunshot wounds to his abdomen and leg.

Metro police reported Gross had fled to the parking lot, first going to his car, which was parked and running in a handicap spot.

Goodlett followed him outside, shot toward the car three times, then followed Gross down a nearby alley where he fired more shots.

Gross was killed at the scene.

Detectives are investigating whether or not the altercation stemmed from an earlier incident at a Nashville night club.

Goodlett, a Nashville college student from Atlanta, is now wanted in the crime. Metro police believe he has left the Nashville area.

Anyone knowing the possible whereabouts of Jordan Goodlett is urged to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463 or their local law enforcement agency.

At the time of the shooting, Goodlett was free on $4,000 bond stemming from a Jan. 21 felony marijuana arrest by Tennessee State University police. The court date on that case is set for May 13th.
