CREATED Mar 19, 2014

ANTIOCH, Tenn. – A 37-year-old man was shot and killed outside his Antioch home during an apparent attempted robbery on Tuesday night.

Officials with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said Moises Zarate was shot to death at the residence in the 5000 block of Oakwood Forest Drive.

Two masked gunmen reportedly approached Zarate and his cousin while they were unloading items from a vehicle around 9:30 p.m.

One of the gunmen grabbed Zarate from behind while the other threatened to shoot his cousin.

Zarate was hit by gunfire, and died at the scene.
