Nashville Man Arrested for Friday Night Homicide

A Nashville man has been charged with murder following a Friday night incident.

In a recent development from Nashville, 19-year-old Jahir Hernandez has been officially charged with the murder of 30-year-old Javier Palafox-Garcia. The tragic event unfolded on a Friday night when Palafox-Garcia’s body was discovered in the street on the 700 block of Patricia Drive shortly after 9 p.m.

The investigation into the incident revealed a premeditated act by Hernandez, who met with Palafox-Garcia with the intent to kill. Hernandez cited retaliation for an alleged sexual assault by Palafox-Garcia four years prior, which was never reported to law enforcement, as his motive. According to Hernandez’s account, the confrontation occurred after Palafox-Garcia entered the front passenger seat of his car at an apartment complex on Thompson Place near Murfreesboro Pike. Hernandez confessed to shooting Palafox-Garcia multiple times before driving to Patricia Drive, where he then expelled the body onto the street and deliberately drove over it.

Later that night, at around 11:30 p.m., Hernandez voluntarily surrendered to authorities at the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office on S. 5th Street, confessing to the killing. He was subsequently taken to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) headquarters for further questioning. As a result of the investigation, Hernandez has been detained and is currently held on a $350,000 bond, facing a criminal homicide charge.

This case has attracted considerable attention due to the nature of the allegations and the subsequent actions of the accused. The Nashville Police Department continues to investigate the circumstances leading to this tragic event.
