FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

          
West Precinct detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the gunman who Friday afternoon fatally shot Moises Cedeno, 32, outside Lee’s Market at 310 17th Avenue North.
          
Cedeno, of Clarksville, was sitting in the front passenger seat of an electric company work van in the parking lot while his co-worker, the driver, went inside the market to buy a sandwich at 12:30 p.m.  Clear surveillance video shows the gunman walk by the van and look into the rear window.  The suspect then pulled up the hood of his jacket and walked back to confront Cedeno at gunpoint during an apparent robbery attempt.  Cedeno, who seemed startled, put his hands out the open van window in an apparent defensive reaction.  The gunman fired, striking Cedeno in the leg.  Cedeno managed to get out of the van and go inside the market.  He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.  The gunman may have fled in a nearby vehicle.
          
The suspect is a black man who appears to be in his teens or early 20s.  He has a fade haircut, longer on top with shaved sides and back.  
           
Anyone who recognizes the gunman from the attached surveillance photo is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word “CASH” along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES) or online at www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com.  Persons who contact Crime Stoppers by phone, text or Internet can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
