“It’s definitely scary,” local resident Hannah Thompson told NBC while the alleged killers were still at large. “It struck a lot of fear in me and makes me nervous to get home at night.”
The suspects allegedly murdered 31-year-old Kendall Rice on his way to the bus stop for work. They are further suspected in the killing of Bartley Teal, 33, and Jaime Sarrantonio, 30, who were fatally shot outside of the Cobra bar while celebrating Teal’s 33 birthday.

“These are just two senseless cold-blooded homicides,” said police spokesman Don Aaron. Nashville Metro Police Department Commander David Imhof told reporters for the Tennessean that they believe the robberies and murders are connected. But Nashville police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford told NBC that while “there are similarities,” the crimes “have not been definitively connected.”
“The men have not been charged with any of the killings, which police say are still under investigation,” CNN reports.
