8-year-old injured in South Nashville shooting


Metro police are investigating after someone fired shots into a home in Antioch Saturday night, injuring an 8-year-old girl. 

It happened around 10:30 p.m. at a home on Volunteer Drive, which is close to Haywood Lane. 

Metro police reported the parents heard a loud boom outside and several bullets hit the house. 

The girl was struck in her ear, either grazed by a bullet or hit by some shrapnel, but she did not require medical treatment, according to Metro police.  

The bullet that hit the girl is believed to have traveled through a kitchen wall, an oven and a fridge before entering the girl’s bedroom.  

Metro police said the shooting appears to be random and the home was not targeted. 

No suspect description was immediately released. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
