Terrible news out of downtown Nashville this morning.
A man has died after police say he became unruly and had to be restrained by security at the rooftop bar of Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, located at the corner of 4th Avenue South on Nashville’s famous lower Broadway.

subject may not be breathing, reporting CPR in progress
Video shared to Twitter showed emergency personnel performing CPR on an individual in the back of an ambulance, and traffic from the police scanner advised the hospital that the man under “trauma arrest” may have had a weapon.
from review of audio here from VUPD, it was medic 2 transporting the trauma arrest patient…
The man was transported to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
According to Metro Nashville Police, the death is being investigated as a homicide. As of right now no arrests have been made, and it’s unclear whether anyone involved will face any charges.
Of course there are all kinds of rumors flying around the internet, but this is all we know so far.
And whatever the facts turn out to be, it’s tragic that somebody lost their life somewhere that people just go to have a good time.
police units report the ambulance is enroute to vanderbilt with CPR in progress, one police unit indicates that they have a gun magazine recovered (there were not any shots fired/shooting reported at this point, however may be a gun then for the possible weapon)
