A Nashville gunfighter took out three armed robbers inside Hot Kicks, a sneaker shop, late Thursday night.

There were multiple people inside when three armed robbers busted through the back door and opened fire. While everyone  took off running, one person stood his ground and returned fire. 


While none of the customers or staff were hurt, officers found one of the shooters at the back door with multiple gunshot wounds, and he later died at Vanderbilt university University Medical Center. However, the other two didn’t get away. They both showed up at TriStar Centennial Medical Center with fresh gun wounds.

Witnesses said one of the people in the group was able to wrestle one of the suspect’s gun away and exchanged fired with at least one person.

The three gunmen fled and a 22-year-old inside the store called police.

Responding officers discovered 19-year-old Damelvian Evans critically injured behind the business. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.

Authorities said officers found one man near the back door with several gunshot wounds. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and later died.

According to police, two other suspects, Ricky Starks and Dwight Mason Jr., both 18, later showed up at TriStar Centennial Medical Center with gunshot wounds. Police said they both suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Sounds like Nashville has their very own gunslinging hero!
