Police arrest suspect in Salemtown murder in Kentucky

Metro Nashville police arrested the man wanted in connection with a deadly Easter Sunday shooting at a Salemtown restaurant late Tuesday night.

Metro Nashville police have issued a bulletin for Anton Rucker, 46, after 33-year-old Allen Beachem was killed at Roasted Salemtown, a restaurant on Garfield Street.

Two days later, Metro Nashville police found Rucker at a home in Princeton, Kentucky, about 100 miles northwest of Nashville. He was taken into custody without incident shortly before 11 p.m

MNPD spokesman Don Aaron said the incident began when the two men got into an argument around 3 p.m. The suspect pulled out a gun, fired multiple shots and fled the scene in a Mercedes GLS 450, Aaron said during a news conference Sunday afternoon.

Rucker’s car was found overnight near 26th Avenue North and Jefferson Street, about two miles from the crime scene, police announced on social media Monday morning.

Five other people were shot and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Aaron said. A sixth person suffered a graze wound, although it is unclear whether that was the result of a gunshot or a scratch.

A seventh victim, a pregnant woman, was transported to a local hospital after suffering a panic attack, Aaron said.
