Convicted Felon Arrested After Nashville Shooting

A man was apprehended following a shooting incident in Nashville.

In Nashville, a recent shooting incident on Panorama Drive led to the swift arrest of a convicted felon. The event unfolded on a Monday, involving a 37-year-old male victim who reported he was exercising outdoors when he entered into a verbal altercation with the suspect. The suspect, later identified as 46-year-old Jonathan Scott Oglesby, allegedly retrieved a firearm from his residence nearby, returned to the scene, and fired multiple shots. The victim sustained injuries to his leg and foot but was fortunate to have non-life-threatening injuries and was promptly taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.

Following the incident, North Precinct patrol officers located Oglesby walking his dog down the street. When approached for questioning, Oglesby refused multiple requests to secure his dog. As he began to walk away, the dog slipped out of its collar, charged aggressively at an officer, leading to the officer discharging their weapon and fatally wounding the dog.

Oglesby, who has a record of 12 felony convictions, was positively identified, taken into custody, and charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and being a felon in possession of a weapon. He is currently being held on a $77,500 bond.

This incident underscores the police department’s commitment to public safety and the effectiveness of their response to criminal activities. Further details and updates regarding this case can be found on the Nashville government official website.
