NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two people were arrested in connection with a shooting at a Hermitage apartment complex on May 14 that injured a 10-year-old boy.
According to police, the shooting happened during the day at the Avalon of Hermitage apartments on Andrew Jackson Parkway and wounded a 10-year-old boy.
The investigation shows the shooting stemmed from two groups arguing over payment for a short term rental. The groups met in the apartment complex parking lot to fight when gunfire rang out. The boy was inside his apartment when a bullet grazed him in the head, according to police.
Officers arrived on scene to investigate and found over 60 cartridge casings, including multiple rifle rounds.
Police have since charged 19-year-old Jason Willis with five counts of aggravated assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and gun possession during the commission of a dangerous felony. He is being held in lieu of a $355,000 bond.
Kryanu Givens, 26, has been charged with evidence tampering as officers believe she cleaned up a trail of blood that led to her apartment. She is being held on a $10,000 bond.
William Washington, 19, was arrested in August and remains jailed on multiple charges including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession during the commission of a dangerous felony.
The investigation remains ongoing.
