NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The man who allegedly shot and killed 18-year-old Kenny Hatcher was taken into custody Friday night after crashing his car in south Nashville.
After naming Mohamed Almahmmody, 23, as a suspect Friday morning, detectives developed information he was at the M-Star motel near Harding Place.
Officers saw Almahmmody in the parking lot of the motel and before they could stop him, he got into a silver SUV and sped away.
Almahmmody drove across Harding Place to Perimeter Hill Drive and onto Antioch Pike where he crashed into a private waste management truck.
Police took Almahmmody into custody as he was trying to escape through the window of his damaged vehicle.
He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-critical injuries.
Almahmmody is accused of murdering Kenny Hatcher, 18, Tuesday night by firing shots from a black Infiniti sedan as Hatcher stood outside a home on Vine Hill Road with friends.
The car is alleged to have been driven by Almahmmody’s girlfriend, Tristen Bowen, 18. She will be arrested for murder upon her discharge from a psychiatric hospital.
The Infiniti has been recovered and impounded. The motive for the murder remains under investigation.
Almahmmody was booked into the Metro jail and charged with criminal homicide, three counts of aggravated assault and evading arrest. His bond was set at $735,000.
