NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man was taken into custody Thursday morning after authorities were called to a Nashville warehouse on reports of a domestic situation.
Police officers and a SWAT team descended on the building in the 3400 of Briley Park Blvd. North around 7:30 a.m. regarding a man with a woman inside the building.
Commander Sebastian Gourdin with Metro police told News 2 the victim said she and the man were on their way to the warehouse when they got into an argument.
The victim says the suspect pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her as well as hit her, according to Commander Gourdin.
Authorities told News 2 the victim then texted a coworker to let them know what happened. Officers were waiting at the scene when the couple arrived.
“They then arrived at the location and parked in the warehouse,” said Gourdin. “At that time the victim then got out of the vehicle went inside to the office area where we were waiting on her an secured her.”
The suspect remained in the truck for a few moments before entering the office area where he was taken into custody.
“We did not locate a handgun, but again this is a big warehouse it is possible that he did put the gun somewhere, but we are still looking for the handgun,” said Gourdin. “Drugs were located in the truck as well so we are still trying to determine who the drugs belong to, but that is another issue that is going to come up as well.”
Police say the suspect, whose identity has not been released, did have outstanding warrants and could be facing additional charges.
