NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A 19-year-old Nashville man has been indicted on a charge of first-degree murder in a July 18 shooting death believed to be drug-related.

Police said DeShawn Stone is charged in a grand jury indictment with first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery and attempted first-degree murder.

Stone is accused of shooting two men in the 800 block of 28th Avenue North near Booker Street. Harold Carr, 27, died at the scene, while Sidney Alonzo Stuart, 28, ran a short distance before collapsing with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Investigators say the motive for Carr's murder is believed to be a drug-related robbery, and other arrests are possible in the shooting.

Stone has been jailed since Aug. 2 after an arrest for alleged cocaine possession in a drug-free school zone.
