Family of man killed during robbery asks for help finding suspects

Andre Cooper

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three months after Andre “AJ” Cooper was shot and killed during a robbery at his home, his family and friends are speaking out and asking for help.

On January 8, two gunmen entered AJ’s home on Kings Lane. He was robbed and shot multiple times.

AJ’s mother, Kennettra Baxter, was living in Detroit, Michigan, when she got the call.

“My son was being rushed to the Vanderbilt emergency room as a result of multiple gunshot wounds,” Baxter told News 2.

AJ died at the hospital two days before his 27th birthday. Even after all this time, no arrests have been made. Detectives say the investigation remains open and active.

AJ’s family is asking the public for help in solving the cold case.

His aunt, Kischa Taylor, said anyone who saw or heard anything should call police.

“The smallest detail could be the detail that helps solve this case,” explained Taylor.

The gunmen are both black men who are believed to be in their early 20s. One of the suspects had dreads and was last seen wearing a blue and orange jacket and blue jeans. The other suspect had a fade haircut and was wearing a black jacket and dark pants.

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
