Murder Suspect Captured After Being Placed on Nashville’s Top 10 Most Wanted List


An investigation spanning more than a year in the April 2022 fatal shooting of Nathan Barnett, 62, in an apartment complex parking lot on Richards Road has led to the grand jury murder indictment of Jordan Davis, 25, of Murfreesboro.

Davis, who has been in local and then federal custody since last July on unrelated gun and drug offenses, was identified as one of two suspects involved in the homicide.

The investigation, led by Homicide Detective Will Mathis, indicates Barnett was meeting with both suspects in an apparent narcotics exchange when he was fatally shot inside a Chrysler 300.

Davis is facing first-degree murder, premeditated first-degree murder, and a felon in possession of a firearm.
