LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 19-year-old has been arrested for a drive-by shooting that claimed the life of a 13-year-old Lebanon girl earlier this month.
Joseph Hendry was taken into custody at the Extended Stay America Hotel in Brentwood around 11 a.m. Tuesday.
C’Asia Watkins was shot in the head as her Sycamore Street home was riddled with bullets on Jan. 5 while she was sleeping.
She was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she died a few days later after being taken off life-support.
Hendry,19, is charged with criminal homicide and is being held without bond. He has previously been arrested multiple times on drug charges.
A motive has not been released. The investigation is ongoing.
