It happened at a Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency property in the 1000 block of Second Avenue South.

According to Metro police, 24-year-old Tyson Oglesby arrived at the home just before 1 p.m. He reportedly exchanged gunfire with Derrick Stafford, 40, who was inside the apartment.

Both men and two women were struck. Stafford was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition.

He died Monday.

Oglesby fled to an east Nashville home in the 900 block of North 12th Street.

A friend then drove him to Vanderbilt, where he was listed in stable condition. The woman sustained a non-life threatening injury to her leg.

After searching the 12th Street home, authorities say they found cocaine, marijuana, three guns, and cash.

A motive for the shooting was not immediately known and the investigation continues.

Oglesby was arrested Saturday morning and charged with three counts of attempted homicide. Charges against him are expected to be upgraded.

This is the second shooting this week at the Second Avenue South apartment. On Thursday, Juwaun Martindale, 23, was shot in the arm while standing outside.

He was in the apartment during Friday’s shooting but was not injured.
