NASHVILLE — A search is under way for a suspect in the Saturday shooting death of a Nashville man, according to the city’s police chief.

At around 2 a.m. Saturday, a Nashville police officer out on patrol saw a crowd of people near the intersection of Marion Avenue and Mathis Street, according to a press release from Nashville Police Chief Chuck Edwards.

As the officer approached, some of those present began to yell that someone had been shot.

Witnesses on the scene told the officer that a man had left the Blue Swan, a local night spot located on Marion, and had shot a man outside the club before fleeing on foot.

The victim was identified as Cornelius Rashawn Miller, 23, of Lakeland. He was transported to South Georgia Medical Center, where he later died, Edwards said.

Late Saturday, Nashville police named Kelvin Eugene Brown Jr., also known as Kevin Brown, 31, as a suspect in the shooting. He was described as a six-foot tall, black male weighing 160-170 pounds, possibly driving a tan-color Chrysler PT Cruiser.

A warrant for Brown’s arrest on a murder charge has been issued and he is considered armed and extremely dangerous, Edwards said. Anyone coming in contact with Brown should call 911 immediately.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in and is assisting the Nashville Police Department in the search for the suspect.

Edwards asks that anyone with information about the incident or the whereabouts of the suspect should contact the Nashville Police Department at 229-686-7666 or the GBI at 912-389-4103.
