MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)

  --   Murfreesboro Police say the man killed Tuesday night is just one of more than 20 city residents shot, and the second person killed, since the first of the year.

City officials tell WMOT that nearly all the gunshot victims live in the ring of apartment complexes and rental homes that surround Middle Tennessee State University (see the included map) and cater primarily to students.

The most recent shooting resulted in the death of 18-year-old Kendrick Love.
