Metro police have arrested two 18-year-old men in connection to the shooting death of 17-year-old Antwand Covington Jr.

Covington was shot just moments after arriving at a birthday party located on Wesleyville Drive just before 11 p.m. Saturday.

Metro police located gunman Stephen King in a La Vergne apartment complex on Thursday afternoon.

Police said King admitted to firing the shot at Covington, who was not the intended target.

William Martin was taken into custody shortly after the fatal shooting at his Regents Park Circle residence.

He is accused of being the driver of the getaway car and is alleged to have worked with King to clean the vehicle.

Both men are expected to be charged with criminal homicide.
