A discount department store near a public housing project was looted and burned early Sunday after a white police officer shot and killed a black murder suspect. People gathered, and some threw rocks and bottles at police, after the shooting of Leon R. Fisher, 23, of Nashville, about 2:45 a.m. Police put the crowd at fewer than 100, but some witnesses said 200 to 300 people were present. About two hours later, a Dollar General Store was destroyed by fire.
