NASHVILLE — A 17-year-old was fatally shot Thursday night outside on University Court in the Tony Sudekum housing development while apparently watching an argument between several females, according to the Metro Police Department.

Jason Covington of Pecan Street, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center after the shooting around 6:30 p.m. where he was pronounced dead.

Police are seeking information about the alleged gunman, who they believe approached the victim just before 6:30 p.m., asked who he was and then shot him. The suspect then fled on foot, police said.
