Nashville robbery spree suspects

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police are on the hunt for two suspects wanted in connection to a string of armed robberies across Nashville.

The first incident happened at O’Reilly Auto Parts on North Gallatin Pike shortly after 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

“They came from behind the counter and went straight to the back looking for people to rob,” said Francisco Marquez, who was working inside at the time. The men ended up leaving without any cash after a short time.

The next attempted robbery happened at HG Hills on Dickerson Pike around 9:15 p.m.

Two black men, thought to be in their 20s, reportedly entered the store armed with a gun but ran away behind the store after seeing an armed security guard inside.

News 2 learned the suspects were wearing black hooded sweatshirts. One was also wearing white gloves.

After that, police reported two black men wearing masks walked into the Domino’s in the 3900 block of Clarksville Pike at 10 p.m.

The suspects took $150 to $200 at gunpoint before fleeing. Metro police believe they got into a nearby car.

Not long after, two suspects entered the Walgreens in the 600 block of Gallatin Pike South around 10:45 p.m.

The men, who were also in black hooded sweatshirts with black masks, entered the store and stole around $200 at gunpoint. The clerk and a customer were both assaulted and had some personal items stolen, police said.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents should call Metro police at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
