NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two teens have been charged with murder after a gas station employee was shot and killed in Hermitage Monday afternoon.
According to Metro police, a Kwik Sak employee was shot and killed at the gas station located in the 4800 block of Lebanon Pike just after 4 p.m.
Metro police reported Shawn Davis and Demarcus Boyd, both 15, entered the store and had a brief interaction with 36-year-old Vishal Patel, who was behind the counter, before Davis pulled out a handgun and shot Patel.
Patel was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center where he died.
Both Davis, of Franklin, Kentucky, and Boyd, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, drove away from the store in a stolen Kia Sorrento that belonged to a relative of Davis, according to Metro police.
Detectives then located the stolen Kia at the nearby Arby’s restaurant on Lebanon Road and took the teens into custody around 8 p.m.
Davis and Boyd were also charged with aggravated robbery from an incident Sunday at a 7-Eleven gas station on Old Hickory Boulevard where two suspects entered the store, took all the cash from the register at gunpoint and ran away. The teens admitted to their involvement in this robbery during an interview with detectives, according to Metro police.
