Crime Tracker

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Surveillance video from the parking lot of Pearl Cohn High School shows a 19-year-old man point a gun at a juvenile student as she sits in her vehicle, a Metro police report states.

LaBrian Elliott, 19, was charged Thursday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to an arrest affidavit, a female student was in her vehicle in the school’s parking lot on the afternoon of May 2, when she saw Elliott pointing a silver handgun at her, as he approached her car.

The student told officers that Elliott said “you’re next! I’m the one who was threatening you. You going to get it,” the paperwork states.

Elliott then reportedly got into the driver’s seat of a car and waved the gun in the direction of the female student as he drove off.

The incident stemmed from a previous verbal altercation involving Elliott’s girlfriend, investigators said.

Police said surveillance video from the school’s parking lot helped to verify the student’s account of what happened.

Elliott was taken into custody one week later and was also charged with disorderly conduct and carrying a weapon on school property.

His bond was set at about $50,000.
