May 1, 2013


Metro officers and deputy U.S. Marshals moments ago arrested 17-year-old fugitive Eric Goodner at an apartment on Oak Valley Drive in East Nashville.
Goodner was in the apartment by himself and complied with commands to exit and surrender.  He did so unarmed.  North Precinct detectives will be taking custody of Goodner shortly.  The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force provided significant assistance in ascertaining Goodner’s whereabouts.
Goodner is charged with criminal homicide in a Juvenile Court petition and arrest order for the April 11th fatal shooting of Pearl-Cohn High School student Johnathan Johnson on 10th Avenue North.
