NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - A 29-year-old man was taken into custody early Thursday morning and charged with two counts of attempted criminal homicide.

Metro Police responded to the Country Inn and Suites located at 590 Donelson Pike. Officers reportedly learned that a man was trying to enter hotel rooms prior to a stabbing in the woods nearby, then fled in a Jeep.

About a half-mile away, police said the suspect, Jason Bell, crashed the Jeep at Elm Hill Pike and Old Elm Hill Pike. Metro Police documents said Bell then carjacked another occupied vehicle by climbing into the back about 1,000 feet from the crash site.

Police said MNPD helicopters witnessed Bell exit the carjacked vehicle, flee on foot, then attempt to get into a school and steal another vehicle. Bell was taken into custody shortly after.
