Jhonquis Compton, a 19-year-old man, is critically injured after being shot in the head at a Tennessee State University (TSU) dorm early Friday morning. Police claim eyewitnesses saw a man with gold twists in hair shoot Compton and run from the scene in a Pontiac sedan.
Around 1:00 A.M., Nashville Police responded to a shooting at Jenkins Dorm, a property owned by the House of God church but rented out by TSU. There they found Compton with a gunshot wound to the head.
Police believe that the shooting may have been a drug deal gone wrong.
