The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is adding a Nashville man wanted on various charges in Rutherford and Davidson Counties to the state’s Top Ten Most Wanted list.

Last Friday, Tate and another individual committed an aggravated burglary at a residence in LaVergne. Law enforcement attempted to stop the vehicle the two subjects were traveling in when one subject got out of the vehicle and was taken into custody. Tate continued to flee in the vehicle at a high rate of speed, brandishing a firearm and nearly striking a police officer. Officers opened fire on the vehicle and Tate may have been injured during the incident. The vehicle was recovered in Antioch later that day.
Monday, Tate carjacked a red 2012 4-door Ford Escape hatchback with Tennessee tag out of Marshall County, while fleeing officers.
