Man says he shot teen at motel in self-defense

South Precinct detectives believe Anthony Poole, 19, who was killed early Thursday at the Super 8 Motel on Harding Place, was shot in self-defense.

The events began when Michael Darvin, 31, went to the Hamilton Inn on Briley Parkway at Interstate 40 late Wednesday and made a crack sale, according to police.

While he was at the Hamilton Inn, he was robbed by three men. He returned to the Super 8, where he was staying. Less than an hour later, Darvin saw the three robbers in the hallway, he told police.

The three men, at least two of them with guns, demanded that he allow them in his room. He pulled his own gun and shot two of them. He told police it was in self-defense.

Poole and Steven Newsome, 26, were wounded. The third man, Kenzo Quezergue, 18, wasn’t injured.

Newsome drove to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with Poole and Quezergue in the car.

Poole died at the hospital. Newsome was treated and released. Newsome and Quezergue are being charged with aggravated robbery.

Darvin waited at the motel until police arrived and told officers he shot the men. No charges have been placed against him, but the investigation is continuing, police said.
