Murder investigation underway in Franklin
$5,000 reward for information
An intense police investigation is underway to determine who shot and killed 37-year-old Devillas Dodson.
Officers responded to 234 Chestnut Lane shortly after 2:00 am, after receiving a call from that location that someone had been shot. Arriving officers found Dodson laying outside on the driveway and initiated CPR. Paramedics arrived a short time later and pronounced Dodson dead.
