WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT: Metro Nashville Police release body-cam footage from officer-involved shooting in Bordeaux. MNPD released one minute of video from the officer’s body camera during a morning news conference.

A district attorney says the man fatally shot by Tennessee police after charging at an officer with knives was a slaying suspect on Massachusetts’ most wanted fugitives list.

Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz identified the man Monday as Marvin Veiga and said he was a suspect in the October 2020 shooting death of a 25-year-old. Veiga had remained on the loose until Friday, when a Metropolitan Nashville Police Department officer fatally shot him during a traffic stop.

According to MNPD, the officer made a vehicle stop for a white Mercedes and ran the plate but it did not match. It came back to a green Chevy. The driver of the vehicle was fine but the individual in question was the one who got out of the passenger side. That person reportedly got out with two butcher knives and rushed up to the officer who then fired his weapon.
