NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – New details came out in court Friday about a shooting in front of Pearl Cohn High School in Nashville.
14-year-old Rico Ransom is accused of attempted criminal homicide in the shooting of 17-year-old Demario Crowder.
An eye witness testified in juvenile court that Ransom shot Crowder during a fight with three other teens. They apparently knew each other because of a previous fight involving Crowder’s brother.
The witness claimed that Crowder and others planned to confront Ransom and warned him with a text message.
During the confrontation, Rico allegedly shot Crowder multiple times and fled the scene in a dark grey sedan, according to investigators.
Ransom’s attorney argued that the young teen fired in self defense.
A police officer said the investigation is ongoing and some witnesses have not been located.
