NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Metro police arrested a 19-year-old early Tuesday morning for allegedly shooting two women and a man with a pellet gun.
The victims, Jessica Doyle, 25, Cynthia Maciaz, 40, and James Knight, 49, were struck around 1:30 a.m. while sitting on a bus bench across the street from a convenience store located at 701 Dickerson Pike.
They identified Jonathan Polk as the man who fired the BB handgun and told investigators they know Polk from a recent incident in which they allege he took Doyle's cell phone.
All three victims suffered minor injuries but declined medical treatment.
While on the scene investigating, officers saw Polk drive by.
He quickly sped up after seeing the patrol car, ran a stop sign at Joseph Avenue and Cleveland Street and struck an SUV.
No one was injured and Polk was taken into custody following the collision without incident.
A loaded BB gun was recovered from Polk's car, police said.
Polk was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, reckless driving and driving without a license.
He was booked into the Metro jail on a $56,000 bond.
