Nashville Man Arrested for Wednesday Night's Shooting of His Pregnant Ex-Girlfriend and Her Current Boyfriend
Detectives assigned to the MNPD’s TITANS (The Investigate Team Addressing Neighborhood Shootings) Unit this afternoon arrested Brian T. Mitchell, 23, on 3 counts of attempted murder for shooting his ex-girlfriend, who was 6 to 7 months pregnant, and her current boyfriend at Cedar Pointe Apartments on Cedar Pointe Parkway in Antioch late Wednesday night.
South Precinct officers responded to the shooting call at 10:51 p.m. They found a pregnant Laquisha Terrell, 23, on the ground with gunshot wounds to her chest, abdomen and legs. Her boyfriend, Michael D. Stewart, 28, was on the ground with gunshot wounds to his chest and hip. Terrell told first responding officers and witnesses that her ex-boyfriend, Mitchell, had shot them. Stewart told officers that they were walking up breezeway stairs toward their apartment when they were shot.
Terrell and Stewart were rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. As part of life saving efforts for Terrell and her daughter, an emergency Caesarean section was performed to deliver the child, who is in extremely critical condition. Terrell is in critical but stable condition. Stewart is in stable condition.
Mitchell was spotted in South Nashville by undercover TITANS Unit detectives. He drove to the intersection of Charlotte Avenue and Dr. D.B. Todd Boulevard where he was stopped and taken into custody. Mitchell is being held in lieu of $1.5 million bond.
