NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A 21-year-old man faces charges after he allegedly fired shots at the ground during a drug-related shooting Wednesday.

Police were called to the intersection of Lafayette and Lewis streets, south of downtown, around 11:10 a.m.

A 24-year-old woman standing nearby was hit in the leg by a bullet fragment. Her wound is not serious.

She was able to identify the man as Brandon Starks and officers located him a short distance away outside a market off Lafayette Street.

Starks was taken into custody for questioning without incident.

As many as six shell casings were found near the scene but police believe they were leftover from another shooting and not connected to Wednesday's events.

Starks is charged with aggravated assault.

Police said he has previous convictions for drug possession and evading arrest.
