NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 20-year-old man died when he was shot at an apartment complex just south of downtown Nashville Monday evening.

Cain had a lengthy criminal record and days before his shooting death, police said he had been convicted of two felony aggravated assault counts stemming from an August 2016 incident.

In October 2014, he was also apprehended after taking part in a mass escape from Woodland Hills Youth Development Center.
