Smyrna Police have released a photo of the suspect accused of shooting another man in the face. Authorities say at approximately 12:40 Thursday morning, they responded to a shooting at the Singh Bar and Restaurant at the corner of Sam Ridley Parkway and Weakley Lane. The shooting occurred in the parking lot and one male victim was shot in the face.
He was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center in critical condition while the shooter fled the scene. According to police, both had been in the bar prior to the shooting but it's unclear what led to the shooting. We understand they were both asked to leave after causing a disturbance inside.
