NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police say they are classifying a deadly Nashville shooting as justifiable homicide after a man shot and killed a burglar in his home.
The call came in around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Radnor Street, located just off of Nolensville Pike. The shooting happened at the back side of the home.
Metro Nashville police say a 72-year-old Henry Schuster came home after eating breakfast to find a kitchen window screen lying on the floor along with several other items. According to investigators, he drew a pistol and began searching each room of the home.
Police say he encountered 27-year-old Taylor Lowery in a bathroom. Schuster told police he shot Lowery when he lunged at him and tried to grab for the gun. Neighbors like Adam Troy had no idea the shooting even happened....
Schuster ran outside and called 911. Lowery was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.
