West Precinct Detectives Charge Andre Cole with Sunday Night's Murder of Lawine Adderly



West Precinct detectives are charging Andre L. Cole, 21, with criminal homicide for Sunday night’s fatal shooting of Lawine Adderly, 20, in a parking lot of Richland Hills Apartments on Maudina Avenue.

Officers responded to a shots fired call at the complex at 7:30 p.m. and found Adderly lying on the pavement. He was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.

Investigation throughout the night led to the development of Cole as the suspected shooter. He was taken into custody this morning at an apartment on Long Hunter Lane in Nashboro Village. A pistol was recovered from there. Detectives believe the shooting is related to a dispute over a woman.

Cole is being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.
