Tywan Smith Jailed on Attempted Murder and Vandalism Charges Stemming from May 2 Gunfire on Woodstock Drive



Tywan W. Smith, 19, wanted since May 2 on outstanding warrants charging him with attempted murder and felony vandalism for shooting a man outside his ex-girlfriend’s Woodstock Drive home, is now in the Metro Jail and is being held in lieu of $255,000 bond.

Smith, who had been in the custody of the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, was transferred to Nashville today.

Smith drove up to his former girlfriend’s home on Woodstock Drive just before 5 p.m. on May 2 and found her sitting in a vehicle with a male friend. She and the male friend both got out and told Smith to leave. Detectives were told that after a brief exchange of words between the three, Smith pulled a semi-automatic pistol from his waistband and opened fire. Bullets hit the male in the hand and grazed his stomach. His vehicle was also hit by gunfire.

At the time of this shooting, Smith was free on $7,500 bond from a March arrest on charges of aggravated assault and felony vandalism stemming from a domestic dispute with his mother.
