Clarksville police arrested a third suspect involved in a shooting that is believed to have occurred over after a confrontation concerning a balloon.

Detarius Curry was taken into police custody on Monday following a traffic stop.

The 20-year-old is charged with two counts of attempted homicide and reckless endangerment for a shooting that occurred at a home located on Barkwood Drive in late September.

According to police, shots were fired after neighbor's got into a confrontation when a two-year-old took a balloon from a home for sale.

As the argument escalated, a man and a woman retreated in a Chrysler 300 sedan.

Shortly after, a Ford Thunderbird with five males inside arrived and tried to block the Chrysler's path.

As the men exited the Thunderbird, one of them displayed a handgun and started shooting at the victims.

The driver of the Chrysler reversed in an attempt to escape, but got stuck on a culvert. Several rounds were shot into the door and hood of the car.

The suspects reentered their vehicle and continued to shoot at the Chrysler as they fled the scene.

One of the suspects, 22-year-old James Bagwell, has since turned himself in to the Montgomery County jail.  

He was booked on one count of attempted criminal homicide and his bond was set at $500,000.

Police also arrested a 16-year-old juvenile in connection with the shooting.

He is charged with criminal responsibility for solicitation of a felony.

The investigation to identify and arrest the remaining suspects is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Clarksville Police Department's tips line at 931-645-8477.
