East Precinct detectives are working to identify a heavily tattooed gunman who Friday at 5:30 p.m. robbed a man in the Kroger parking lot at 3410 Gallatin Pike.
The victim was loading his groceries onto his motorcycle when the suspect approached him, lifted his shirt to reveal a revolver in his waistband, and demanded his keys. The victim complied. As the gunman attempted to ride off on the motorcycle, he was confronted by a Kroger security guard and crashed. He then fled on foot and a short time later stole a blue 2006 Ford pickup truck (photo attached) from a nearby residence.
The suspect is a white man with sleeve tattoos on both arms. He has a Juggalo (Insane Clown Posse) tattoo on his left bicep. He also appears to have a tattoo under his left eye.
Anyone who recognizes him from the attached surveillance photos is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
