FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The man fatally shot late Thursday night inside of a dark gray Dodge Charger and then dumped onto Old Hickory Boulevard near Gray Avenue has been identified through his fingerprints as Justin D. Divens, 32, of Nashville. Divens’ 2008 Dodge Charger, in which he was apparently murdered, has been recovered from Archwood Apartments in Madison.

A witness reported to police that the Dodge was speeding in traffic Thursday night when he saw what he believed to be muzzle flashes from inside the car. He said the vehicle then slowed to a near stop, the passenger side rear door opened, and the gunshot victim (Divens) was pushed onto the roadway. The Dodge then sped away.

The investigation by Madison Precinct detectives is continuing. Anyone with information about Divens’ murder is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
