last updated 5:14 PM, Mar 12, 2021

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) Metro police said an officer and a woman were wounded Friday morning in a shootout during a traffic stop in Nashville. The woman, identified as 31-year-old Nika Nicole Holbert, later died at an area hospital.

According to police, the shooting happened around 9:30 a.m. in the parking lot of a Dollar General store, which is located on Brick Church Pike, not far from Ewing Drive.

MNPD spokesperson Don Aaron said Officer Josh Baker pulled over a black Chevrolet Camaro whose owner had six outstanding drug warrants. He said Holbert was driving, but she was not the owner of the car.

Aaron said at some point, the situation escalated, and Holbert fired shots. Baker returned fire, and they were both struck. After the shooting, Aaron said Holbert sped away and crashed at Brick Church Pike and Moorewood Drive.

Metro Police released a video statement, including body camera footage of the incident. Warning, the video below shows the shooting itself, which some may find difficult to watch.

Baker was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and is now in stable condition after undergoing surgery. Holbert was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where she later died.
