August Death of Dallas Jordan Barrett at Downtown Bar Ruled a Homicide

Based on the just released findings of the Medical Examiner, the MNPD is now classifying the August 16 death of Dallas Jordan Barrett, 22, who was involved in an altercation with security staff on the roof area of Whiskey Row bar at 400 Broadway, as homicide. It had been an unclassified death pending the Medical Examiner’s final determination of asphyxiation as the cause, although the MNPD’s Homicide Unit has been leading the investigation since the night Barrett died.

Charges are pending the Homicide Unit’s continuing discussion with the District Attorney’s Office about the autopsy and investigative findings. No one has been arrested at present.

MNPD officers responded to the top floor of the bar pursuant to an August 16th 10:56 p.m. 911 call concerning a fight. The initial responding officers found Barrett on the floor unresponsive and began CPR until they were relieved by Nashville Fire Department personnel. Barrett was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives were told by staff at the bar that Barrett became unruly and was asked to leave. They said that he began to fight with security staff, who reportedly pulled him to the ground and held him on the floor. Barrett reportedly became unresponsive while being held on the ground by security.
