Convicted Felon Arrested for Gunfire Near Nashville Nightclub

Erik Dewaun Williams was arrested on reckless endangerment and gun charges after gunfire near a Nashville nightclub.

Fast response by Specialized Investigations Division TITANS (The Investigative Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) detectives led to the arrest of Erik Dewaun Williams, 24, on six counts of felony reckless endangerment and one count of unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon early today. The arrest occurred after gunfire was reported near the Soho Lounge on Bell Road in South Nashville.

At the time of his arrest, Williams was out on $50,000 bond for a pending 2022 grand jury indictment that also charged him with felony reckless endangerment and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon. He is scheduled to appear in Criminal Court next month on that 2022 case.

TITANS detectives, who were in the area on special assignment, responded to a 911 call about persons fighting with guns. Upon arriving at the scene, they saw Williams holding a pistol, which he threw down when he noticed the police. He attempted to flee but was apprehended, and his gun was recovered.

The gunfire, which involved at least two individuals, reportedly stemmed from an argument. A total of six people were wounded, all of whom had been at the Soho Lounge. Three victims from Columbia, Tennessee, arrived at Vanderbilt Hospital in a private vehicle, while the other three victims left in another private vehicle that crashed at the intersection of Bell Road and Murfreesboro Pike. They were subsequently transported to Vanderbilt Hospital and are all in stable condition.

Williams, who has prior convictions in Rutherford County (2018) and Sumner County (2021), is accused of contributing to the gunfire. He is currently jailed on a $300,000 bond. The Non-Lethal Shooting Unit detectives are continuing the investigation.
