CREATED Mar 13, 2014

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. – A Goodlettsville man has been arrested after police said he fired shots at a codes inspector for the City of Nashville.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said 38-year-old Leroy Myers, Jr. was arrested Thursday after he allegedly fired shots at a Metro Nashville Codes inspector who was investigating whether not he was operating an illegal vehicle repair shop at his Union Hill Road residence.

Sandra Custode reportedly told police that while she was speaking to Myers about the alleged violation, he became visibly upset and began yelling.

After taking photos, police said Custode got into her vehicle to leave when she heard two gunshots behind her and turned to see Myers holding a shotgun.

Custode drove away and immediately called police.

Myers told police he fired the gun at some animals that happened to be in the vicinity of the victim.

Investigators said Myers has an assault conviction from a previous arrest. He has been booked in lieu of $25,000 bond.
