Metro Nashville police charged one suspect, and another man was shot while leaving the scene of a two-vehicle, rollover wreck late March 31 on Stewarts Ferry Pike in Donelson.
Police said Taylor Darrington McEwen, 19, was charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for apparently shooting an acquaintance. He remained at Metro Nashville Jail on $75,000 bond.
Paramedics took the shooting victim to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower leg, said Metro Nashville police Sgt. Craig Amabile.
The shooting victim ran to a nearby house in the 2800 bock of Blue Brick Drive and called for help, Amabile said.
According to police, McEwen and the shooting victim are acquaintances. The pair had an argument, and then both left in their separate vehicles.
Both men were then involved in a motor vehicle accident with each other, police said.
McEwen allegedly shot at the victim as he ran from the crash, police said. According to the arrest warrant, McEwen said, “he fired two to three shots at the victim as he ran away from the crash.”
Emergency crews were dispatched at about 10:30 p.m. to a rollover injury crash in the 100 block of Stewarts Ferry Pike near Lebanon Pike in front of Donelson Middle School. Dispatchers advised rescue personnel to stage for police because a possible weapon was involved.
A black, Dodge Nitro sport-utility vehicle laid on its side across northbound lanes of Stewarts Ferry Pike. A tire, glass and debris from car parts were strewn across the road.
Another vehicle appeared to veer off the road and up an embankment, coming to rest behind a line of trees next to a parking lot at the Tennessee School for the Blind campus.
