  • Metro PD Shooting

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An undercover police operation ended in gunfire overnight. Late Thursday night an officer shot in self defense - killing the robbery suspect.

    Police said a local Pizza Hut called them after they received suspicious phone calls.

    Don Aaron said 11-year-veteran officer Josh Walters, 32, dressed as a Pizza Hut driver and then headed to the address where the calls came from.

    Police said when Walters stopped at the condo he saw 18-year-old Tyrell Chandler Wortham quickly approaching him in the dark with a drawn weapon.

    Walters fired three times at Wortham in self defense. Wortham was taken to Summit Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

    Aaron said that Walters did not have enough time to get out of the vehicle and shout commands.

    Police also said the Wortham's weapon turned out to be an air pistol that looked much like a real gun.

    Friday morning, police said another suspect was still on the loose.


    I watched a show on Channel 5 where they let people call in and talk about the story and they had some real winners calling in. It pretty much sounded like this... THE EVIL WHITE DEVIL POLICE SHOT THIS INNOCENT BOY OVER A PIZZA.... THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO SHOOT HIM... THEY COULD HAVE FIRED A WARNING SHOT OR MAYBE SHOT HIM IN THE LEG TO SCARE HIM.....

    I hope all the people in Nashville walking in little buddy's footprints realize that officers aren't gonna hesitate to protect themselves and put an end to nonsense like this. I don't care if it was a BB gun or a TV remote...... Don't be sneaking around in the bushes at midnight trying to rob the pizza man.... Or in this case, an undercover police officer.... Nobody in the history of police shootings ever got killed for being in the house at midnight eating a peperoni Digorno.... Have they? HMMMMMMM except maybe in Atlanta. But that happens when you can't read a search warrant.

      On the local forum, the friends of the deceased robber are saying the typical stuff like "da police shot dat boy over a pizza, dat aint rite, they need better training". It seems the deceased was the one who decided to die over "a pizza". Sounds like a god job by Metro.
      Work harder! Millions on welfare depend on you...
