HERMITAGE, Tenn. (WSMV) – Metro detectives have arrested two more people they say are connected to a May shooting that injured an innocent 10-year-old boy.
On May 14, he was sitting inside his family’s apartment in Avalon, Hermitage Apartments, when he was hit in the head by a stray bullet. Police said a dispute between two groups over a rent increase turned into a physical altercation when the shooting occurred. More than 60 bullet casings were recovered from the spot.
Jason Willis, 19, is charged with five counts of aggravated assault, two counts of reckless endangerment and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. He is being held in the Davidson County Jail in lieu of $355,000 bond. Creanu Givens, 26, has been charged with tampering with evidence. Givens was charged with cleaning up a trail of blood that led to her apartment and is being held on $10,000 bond.
William Washington, 19, was arrested in August and remains in jail on multiple charges including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
The investigation is ongoing.
