Man arrested in fatal shooting death of Nashville nurse Caitlyn Kaufman
12/11/2020

Nashville police announced Friday that they arrested a man in connection with last week's fatal shooting of Nashville nurse Caitlyn Kaufman.

Devaunte Lewis Hill, 21
, was taken into custody at 6:15 a.m. Friday by Metro Nashville Police Department SWAT team members, police Chief John Drake said. He was arrested at his East Nashville home in Berkshire Place Apartments.

Hill faces charges including criminal homicide in Kaufman's Dec. 3 death on Interstate 440 in Nashville. Homicide Detective Christopher Dickerson said they have not ruled out the possibility of more suspects or arrests to come.




The detective said Hill was a stranger to Kaufman.

"I can confirm they did not know each other," Dickerson told reporters during a news conference at MNPD headquarters.

Kaufman, a nurse at St. Thomas West Hospital, worked the midnight shift in the intensive care unit. She died shortly after dusk Dec. 3 after at least six shots were fired into her car as she drove to work along I-440 westbound, police said.

Just before 9 p.m., a Metro Parks officer said he saw her Mazda CX-5 SUV on the right shoulder of I-440 near the West End Avenue exit. It was against the guard rail so police said he stopped, thinking it was a single-car crash.

Kaufman was dead at the scene after being shot one time in the shoulder, police said.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police are searching for the second suspect they say is involved in the murder of a Nashville nurse, according to a Tweet from MNPD.

Nurse Caitlyn Kaufman was murdered on December 3, 2020 while she was driving to work the overnight shift at Saint Thomas West Hospital. She was shot and killed on Interstate 440 and was just 26-years-old.

Seven days, and more than 50 Crime Stoppers tips later, police arrested 21-year-old Devaunte Lewis Hill as a suspect in the murder of 26-year-old ICU nurse Caitlyn Kaufman. Kaufman was gunned down on I-440 on her way to work.





On Wednesday, January 6, 2021 police announced they are searching for a second suspect in Kaufman’s murder.

James Edward Cowan, 28, is wanted as the second defendant for the crime. An arrest warrant charging Cowan with criminal homicide has been issued. Don Aaron, Public Affairs Manager of Metro Police told News 2 they believe Cowan was in the car and that cell phone data was used to obtain the arrest warrant.
