NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police arrested 19-year-old Emmanuel Oboh following a quadruple shooting at the Egyptian Latino Tobacco Market on September 27.

Officers arrested Oboh Thursday afternoon at his home in the 2500 block of Sharondale Drive. Oboh is accused of shooting four people at the South Nashville Market on Millwood Drive.

According to police, Oboh was in a physical fight with another 19-year-old man just before he grabbed a pistol from his car in the parking lot and opened fire. Police say Oboh did not initially hit his intended victim and three innocent bystanders were wounded by bullets. All four victims were taken to the hospital but are expected to recover.

While arresting Oboh, police also arrested 20-year-old Hayley Spurlock at the home. After searching the property, police found 19 pounds of marijuana, a stolen 9-millimeter pistol, and $66,000 cash. Seven pounds of marijuana was also found in a car outside.

Spurlock was charged with harboring Oboh, possession of marijuana for resale, gun possession in the commission of a dangerous felony, and theft of the gun. Oboh faces several charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, and a felony marijuana charge.

Oboh is being held on a $500,000 bond.
