11/6/2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

South Precinct detectives this evening charged a 16-year-old with reckless endangerment and unlawful gun possession for this afternoon’s shooting of his 16-year-old friend inside an abandoned home on Leo Lane in Antioch. The victim suffered a non-critical wound to his upper right leg and was taken to Vanderbilt for treatment.

The teen suspect initially told detectives that he and the victim were walking when someone in a passing black sedan shot at them. His story changed when confronted with evidence indicating that the shooting occurred inside the abandoned home. He then admitted to holding a pistol when it went off and struck the victim in the leg.
