La Vergne shooting has a neighborhood on edge


LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WKRN) – One person was shot and at least two other people were attacked during an incident Saturday morning on Plantation Drive in La Vergne.

Police said it all started with an altercation in Murfreesboro.

Officers said the altercation then moved to La Vergne, after a group of about 12-13 people in 2-3 cars pulled into Plantation Drive.

During the second altercation, investigators say there are reports of deadly weapons involved, including possibly a tire iron, and a bat.

Police say they found a gunshot victim in the roadway. He continues to recover after being shot twice.

The neighborhood remains on notice.

“Gunshots in the middle of the night, and I’ve been here 7 years, that’s the first time It’s happened in this area,” said James Granby who lives nearby.

“The officer asked me if I heard gunshots last night,” noted Cissy Medders, another neighbor. “That was scary, cause like I said, just happened right there in front of the mailbox.”

Police have not released a suspect name, and are still investigating. Stay with News 2 and refresh your browser for updates on this developing story.
