Murder Suspect Arrested After Traffic Violation

A man wanted for murder was caught following a traffic stop.

Kejuan Jordan-Cole, a 22-year-old fugitive wanted in connection with a murder that occurred on July 4, was apprehended by police after committing a traffic violation in Nashville. The arrest took place early in the morning when Midtown Hills Precinct officers observed Jordan-Cole driving a 2020 Nissan Altima through a red light at the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Deford Bailey Avenue.

Upon initiating a traffic stop, Jordan-Cole exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. After a brief chase, officers were able to detain him. Subsequent checks revealed that Jordan-Cole had an outstanding arrest warrant for criminal homicide.

The charges stem from the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Christopher L. Harris at the Overlook Apartments on Buena Vista Pike. Jordan-Cole, along with several other young adults and teenagers, has been identified as a participant in the shooting.

Following his arrest, Jordan-Cole was placed in jail with a bond set at $910,000. This incident underscores the effectiveness of routine traffic enforcement in apprehending individuals wanted for serious crimes.
