Boy, 16, accused in downtown Nashville bus station shooting
Authorities have arrested a 16-year-old boy wanted in connection with the shootings of four people at a downtown Nashville bus terminal that left one person critically wounded and dozens of commuters scrambling for cover.
Metro Nashville police said in a news release that the teenager confessed Thursday that the critically wounded victim, 18-year-old Javious Chatman, was his intended target of the shooting at the Music City Central transit facility on Monday afternoon.
Police say the three other victims – all teenage boys – suffered graze wounds.
Police say the boy was arrested after a traffic stop Thursday afternoon. He has been charged with one count of attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault and one count of unlawful handgun possession.
