NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police were searching Tuesday for a man they wanted to talk to about Sunday morning’s targeted double murder.

Pedro Tineo, 36, was wanted for questioning in the deaths of Yeri Hernandez Gabino, 18, and Hector Jose Pagada, 34, at Maple Crest Apartments on Natchez Court.

The victims were reportedly riding in the black Lincoln MKS sedan owned by Tineo. According to a press release, detectives are investigating whether it was Tineo who drove them to the apartment complex.

Hours after they asked for the public’s help in finding Tineo, police said just after 10 p.m. he was located and being interviewed. The investigation is ongoing.

So far, an investigation shows that just after the Lincoln arrived, a white Chevrolet Traverse SUV pulled in. The shooter got out of the Traverse, fired into the Lincoln, jumped back into the Traverse and fled.

The driver of the Lincoln, possibly Tineo, fled on foot before police arrived.
