Adrin B. Ohaekwe

WGNS has more information on a Smyrna shooting and robbery that took place this past Saturday (1/2/16).

Smyrna Police are no longer seeking Adrin B. Ohaekwe in connection to the armed robbery due to the fact that his deceased body was found in Nashville, according to Sgt. Bobby Gibson with the Smyrna Police Department. WGNS' Ron Jordan reported...


The death of Ohaekwe is now being investigated by Metro Nashville Police.

Ohaekwe's accomplice, Glenn Roby, turned himself in to Smyrna Police for processing on the warrants issued for his arrest for armed robbery.


Smyrna Police say that gunshot victim Dallas Padgett was flown to Skyline Hospital in Nashville. He is in stable condition. No other victim was injured during this incident.

Sgt. Gibson confirmed the armed robbery did occur at the home of a Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputy, but the deputy was not home at the time and the deputy was not involved.

According to Nashville Metro Police:

The man found murdered Sunday morning in the 2700 block of Old Smith Springs Road has been identified through his fingerprints as Adrin B. Ohaekwe, 22, who is last known to have lived on Paddington Way in Antioch.

Ohaekwe is alleged to have been involved in a drug-related shooting/robbery at a Smyrna home Saturday night. Smyrna police early Sunday swore out an arrest warrant charging Ohaekwe with especially aggravated robbery and had been actively seeking him. Hermitage Precinct detectives are working closely with Smyrna police in the continuing investigation.

Ohaekwe was discovered just before 6:30 a.m. Sunday by a man walking along Old Smith Springs Road. Witnesses in the area reported hearing sounds that may have been gunshots at around 1:05 a.m.
