NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Family and friends of a shooting victim are holding a fish fry and barbecue for one of their loved ones that was shot near downtown Nashville last month.

Dietrich Minor was shot near the Batter’s Box Bar and Grill on Hermitage Avenue on Sept. 27 when he was walking back to the bar from a gas station nearby.

He was taken to the hospital and was in critical condition for days, but is now in stable condition.

A friend of Minor’s told News 2 they are raising money because Minor does not have health insurance. He’s already undergone multiple surgeries and is getting ready for another.

The Batter’s Box Bar and Grill is hosting a fish fry and a barbecue on Saturday Oct. 8th at 2:00 to raise some more money for Minor and his family. A GoFundMe has been set up in addition to the cookout.

Metro Nashville Police are still looking for the people that shot Minor.

The first suspect is described as a white man, approximately 5 foot 7 inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds.  He wore a red hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

The second suspect is described as a black man, approximately 6 foot 1 inch tall and weighing approximately 175 pounds.  He wore a white shirt with a pattern.

Anyone with information about the suspects is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
