NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 26-year-old man has been charged months after a juvenile was critically wounded in a shooting at an apartment complex in East Nashville.

Metro police responded just before 11 p.m. on Sept. 6, 2020 to a complex on Dellway Villa Road, where a juvenile had been shot in the chest. He was transported to a Nashville hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to investigators.

A warrant states there had been an “incident” earlier in the night, which caused people to run around the complex. The juvenile victim reportedly told officers he was running, turned around and saw someone shoot, striking him.
