·1 min read

Nashville police arrested Keion Jemison, 24, in connection with a fatal Friday night shooting.

Jemison faces a criminal homicide charge after Danny Dixon, 30, was fatally shot outside an Antioch Pike hotel, a news release from the Metro Nashville Police Department. Police said Jemison had been renting a room at the hotel. Detectives arrested Jemison Tuesday at an East Webster Street apartment complex.

Jemison is set to appear before a judge Thursday, records show.

How the shooting unfolded

Police said Dixon was sitting behind the wheel in a parked car outside of Stay Lodge in the 1200 block of Antioch Pike around 8 p.m. Saturday when a man approached the vehicle.

The two men spoke briefly before the man shot Dixon in the leg, striking an artery, according to MNPD. Dixon fired back with his own gun and drove to a nearby convenience market, where someone contacted the police.

Dixon died of his injuries, MNPD said. The person who shot him reportedly fled the hotel in a vehicle.
