SMYRNA, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 17-year-old was arrested after police say he shot a man at an apartment complex near Smyrna High School Friday afternoon.
Smyrna police said the shooting happened just before 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 at the Ridgemont Apartments behind Smyrna High School.
Officials say a man and his son arrived at the complex and engaged in an argument with a 17-year-old who lived at the residence.
According to Smyrna police, the 17-year-old shot the man, hitting him twice. The man was transported to a local hospital, where his condition remains unknown.
A Rutherford County Schools spokesperson said the shooting prompted the school to go on lockdown. The lockdown, however, has since been lifted.
Smyrna police say the 17-year-old has been charged with attempted first-degree homicide, possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony, and juvenile possession of a handgun.
The investigation remains active, according to police.
