Bondsmen Track Down Suspect

A man accused of a fatal shooting on Clarksville Pike was quickly caught by bail bondsmen equipped with a stun gun.

The bondsmen, employed by the U.S. Fugitive Apprehension Service, were working on a case when they saw Tyrone Davis, 29, get shot in a parking lot about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. They chased the suspect on foot and fired a Taser at him before catching him on 26th Avenue North, police said.

Nicholas Short, 19, was charged with criminal homicide. A handgun was found in his jacket, police said.

The bondsmen told police they saw the man go through Davis's pockets after the shooting.
