NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police say a Nashville man acted in self-defense when he fatally shot a man who forced his way into an apartment.
35-year-old Michael Shane Martin was killed late Wednesday night in the Antioch neighborhood of the city.
Investigators said Michael Moffitt and Caycee Albright heard a knock at their door and Moffitt found the door peephole was covered. He told Albright to call police while he got an AR-15 rifle and opened the door.
Police said Martin charged in with a handgun and wearing a mask and gloves. Investigators said Moffitt fired, killing Martin. A second masked man fled when he heard the gunshots.
Albright said she knew Martin through friends and police think he might have come to rob Moffitt of his guns.
