In addition, Curtis and his father, Richard Denton Curtis, 46, face charges of conspiracy to commit especially aggravated robbery and tampering with evidence, a detective said.

Richard Denton Curtis was charged with accessory after the fact, Anderson said.

Deputy Freddie Brady responded to a call where neighbors heard the sound of gunfire about 1 a.m. Saturday on Mona Road.

“While attempting to get information, I heard someone screaming off in the distance he had been shot,” Brady reported.

Brady located the victim who gave a statement.

Deputies James Bailey and Tyler Stewart joined Brady in stabilizing the victim until paramedics took over treatment and transported him to the hospital.

Murfreesboro Police and sheriff’s deputies located Richard Curtis Saturday night at his home where they took him into custody.

Christian Curtis is being held on $560,000 bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. His father is being held on $350,000 bond. Hearings are pending in General Sessions Court.
