A man who police said had information on a body found in a Tennessee river was killed in a shootout with SWAT officers.

Around 7:45 p.m. Saturday, the SWAT team with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department responded to the Days Inn parking lot on Percy Priest Drive to help detectives arrest 47-year-old Adrian Cameron and search his motel room, according to Don Aaron, a spokesperson for the police department.

Cameron was wanted on a “state parole violation warrant” and for questioning in the killing of 50-year-old Josh Evans, Aaron said in a video posted on the police department’s YouTube channel.

On Monday, a tugboat operator found Evans’ body wrapped in trash bags in the Cumberland River in west Nashville, according to police. Investigators later determined that Evans — who was from Lebanon, Tennessee, and last seen alive on Sept. 4 — had been shot to death.

Investigators believed that Cameron had “significant information” about Evans’ killing.
