Nashville TN Sept 12 2022
The trial of a security guard charged with fatally shooting a man in 2018 has been indefinitely postponed due to possible new evidence of the victim’s criminal history.
Nathan Glass was a security guard at The Pharmacy restaurant in Nashville when he was involved in a shootout with Deangelo Knox. Knox’s family has argued that Knox was running away and wasn’t a threat to the restaurant.
Glass’s attorneys say it wasn’t conclusive that Glass fired a gun.
Glass had been given an offer to attend the Metro Nashville police academy prior to the shooting, and the offer was delayed during the investigation.
The district attorney’s office initially ruled that Glass had acted in self-defense, and Glass was hired at the MNPD.
The victim’s family and the NAACP argued that the shooting should not have been considered self-defense. Prosecutors began reviewing the case again, and Glass was decommissioned in 2020. He was indicted later that year on a second-degree murder charge.
Glass resigned last December, according to the MNPD.
