NASHVILLE (AP) — Police in Tennessee are searching for a second suspect in the fatal shooting of a nurse on Interstate 440 last month.
An arrest warrant has been issued charging James Edward Cowan, 28, with criminal homicide in the Dec. 3 slaying of Caitlyn Kaufman, Metro Nashville Police told news outlets on Wednesday. Kaufman, 26, was killed as she drove to work at St. Thomas West Hospital.
Devaunte Lewis Hill, 21, was arrested Dec. 11 on a criminal homicide charge in connection with Kaufman’s death.
No motive has been given in the shooting.
A police investigation found that Cowan and Hill know each other and a cell phone analysis puts both men in the area when Kaufman was shot, authorities said.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to Cowan’s arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
