The juvenile suspect wanted by Metro police for the shooting of two other teenagers last Thursday afternoon outside of Robert Lillard Elementary surrendered to police Tuesday night.
The 17-year-old is confined at juvenile detention on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a gun on school property. He is accused of firing a shotgun at two teenagers on the school’s playground.
The victims, ages 16 and 17, walked onto the elementary school’s campus at dismissal time to escort the 17-year-old’s younger brother home. The 16-year-old told police he had been in a dispute with the suspected gunman earlier that day at Whites Creek High School.
The City Paper does not identify juvenile suspects unless they have been charged in adult court.
