CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Clarksville Police Department says two people are in custody following a shooting at an intersection that left a 19-year-old dead Tuesday afternoon.
Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Pine Mountain Road and Woodbridge Drive shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15 to respond to a shooting call.
While officers were on the scene, officials say a vehicle arrived at Tennova Healthcare with a gunshot victim, who was flown to Nashville by a life-flight helicopter.
According to Clarksville police, the victim has been identified as 19-year-old Emmanuel Allen Jr. of Nashville. He died as a result of his injuries.
Detectives with the Clarksville Police Department have arrested 18-year-old William Jamal Brown from Clarksville, and charged him with criminal homicide.
In addition, officers say a 15-year-old boy who was previously detained amid the homicide investigation has been charged in connection with the incident.
According to authorities, a juvenile petition for homicide was taken out and a transport order was signed on Wednesday, Nov. 16 by the juvenile courts.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family,” said Chief of Police David Crockarell. “I would like to thank the officers and detectives who worked tirelessly to ensure that those responsible are held accountable.”
However, since there is no juvenile holding facility in Montgomery County, the teen is reportedly being transported to the Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center until his detention hearing on Friday, Nov. 18.
“Additionally, I would like to reiterate, that because we don’t have a juvenile facility here in Montgomery County, it takes two of my officers off the road to transport a juvenile to another jurisdiction, and in this case, a facility that is 80 miles away,” Crockarell stated. “The need for a juvenile facility here is long overdue.”

Officials say this was not a random act and the occupants of both vehicles were acquainted with each other.
