South and Hermitage Detectives Jointly Investigating Tuesday Night's Fatal Shooting of Lindsey Lumpkin



Detectives from the South and Hermitage Precincts are jointly investigating Tuesday night’s fatal shooting of Lindsey T. Lumpkin, 18, who was found by a citizen on the ground wounded near the intersection of Mildred Shute Avenue & 1st Avenue South. Lumpkin was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died early today.

The investigation has revealed that Lumpkin was shot minutes earlier outside the Shell market at 1501 Lebanon Pike. Lumpkin, who arrived at the market in a small white SUV, got out and approached a dark sedan. An argument ensued, which resulted in gunfire. Lumpkin got back into the white SUV. Both vehicles fled. The driver of the SUV traveled to Mildred Shute Avenue & 1st Avenue South where Lumpkin was dumped onto the ground. The SUV then sped off. Detectives later in the night located the SUV parked on Carroll Street in Napier-Sudekum public housing. The vehicle has been impounded.

Anyone with information that can assist detectives in their continuing effort to identify those involved in Lindsey Lumpkin’s murder is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
