South Precinct Detectives Pursuing Leads in Murder of Hassan Al Mutory
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
South Precinct detectives are looking closely at the background of convicted felon Hassan F. Al Mutory as they work to identify the persons involved in his targeted murder early today on I-24 east near the Briley Parkway exit.
Al Mutory, 22, and an 18-year-old woman were traveling in a black Ford Edge (small SUV) after, according to the woman, they left the Déjà Vu strip club downtown. A person from another vehicle opened fire on the Ford Edge, which crashed into a concrete barrier on the Briley Parkway exit ramp. Both Al Mutory and the woman were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He died after arriving at the hospital. Her wounds are not life-threatening. Information she has provided thus far does not seem to coincide with witness reports from the interstate.
Al Mutory received a 9-year sentence in May of this year as the result of his arrest in February 2016 for unlawful gun possession and possession of 188 Xanax bars for resale.
Al Mutory received a 3-year sentence in January of this year for a reckless homicide conviction. Special Response Team officers arrested Al Mutory in January 2015 on an outstanding warrant charging him with the August 31, 2014 fatal shooting of Carlos Gomez, 20, on Summit Oaks Drive in Bellevue. In that arrest, officers located Al Mutory in the driveway of a residence on Ewing Drive. He rammed an unmarked police vehicle with his Dodge Magnum in an attempt to escape, but quickly surrendered when he discovered he would not be able to get away. Al Mutory was armed with two pistols and possessed quantities of marijuana, cocaine, Oxycodone pills and nearly $2,500 cash.
Anyone with information about the gunfire on the interstate, or seeing the vehicle from which shots were fired, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
