Convicted Felon Surrenders In Walmart Market Parking Lot Shooting

CREATED Jul 23, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A convicted felon surrendered to police in connection with an alleged drug-related shooting in the Madison Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot.

Metropolitan Nashville Police sais 25-year-old Cager Waggoner IV turned himself in at police headquarters Tuesday night. He has been charged with attempted murder and a probation violation.

On Monday, police identified Waggoner as the gunman who shot 29-year-old O’Bryan Williams in the N. Gallatin Pike store parking lot on the night of July 10. 

Investigators said Williams was parked in the back portion of the lot when a tan, extended cab Chevrolet pickup truck pulled up beside him. A man believed to be Waggoner got into Williams’ vehicle. A Davidson County affidavit said Waggoner is a known drug-dealer.

A short time later, a fight broke out inside the vehicle. The affidavit said Waggoner told Williams "Things are going to change," before grabbing the victim's gun from where he kept it under the passenger's side seat.

The affidavit said Waggoner pointed the gun at Williams, who tried to wrestle the gun away from him. Multiple shots were fired during the struggle, and Williams was critically injured.

Williams was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he remains under treatment.

Waggoner then fled the scene in the pickup truck. Police also recovered a bag of marijuana at the scene.

Waggoner was convicted of felony cocaine possession in January 2013 and received an eight-year sentence, most of which was to be served on probation through the Community Corrections Program.

He was held at the Metropolitan Jail under $250,000 bond.
