Nashville Grassroots On Violence

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Hambino Godbody belongs to the group Violence Interrupters. Whenever a shooting happens in Nashville the group meets within 48 hours to see how they can offer their services to the affected community. The group works to curb violence and reduce shootings and crimes, especially among youth.

"We knee deep in the streets, we do not work for no police officers. We try to stop it before it happens," Godbody said.

Godbody grew up in Nashville, specifically the zip code 37208. He said the area has the highest incarceration rate in the country.

"Every violation that happens is not worthy of death. There's things that can be talked about and to be made understood about before we go and take somebody's life," he said.

A 26-year-old man died after a shooting happened near the corner of 17th Avenue and Cockrill Street around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

According to police, the man was found on the porch of a home with a gunshot wound to his torso. Officers do not believe he was shot at the home, instead they believe he went there to get help.
