The suspects were followed by the victims who were able to give 911 dispatchers a description and license plate number.

Officers located the suspect’s vehicle and attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver refused to stop.

Another person, inside the vehicle where the shots were fired, has yet to be identified.

The 16-year-old is being held at the Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center. A detention hearing for the teen is scheduled for Friday, April 23.
