NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 16-year-old boy was shot to death inside his Antioch home Friday and three suspects have been taken into custody, all of whom police say are connected to a second murder.
Kevin Ibarra, a student at Cane Ridge High School, was killed at 12:15 p.m. in his house on Isabelle Lane.
Witnesses reported Ibarra was visited by two males shortly before he died.
Brothers Markeil Williams, 18, and Jalean Williams, 15, of Patricia Drive, were reportedly seen entering the home.
Witnesses told police a female suspect, identified as 18-year-old Shirin Khwaga of Singing Hills Drive, who is also the girlfriend of Markeil Williams, waited outside in a blue-gray Honda Civic with temporary tags.
Ibarra was later found dead in the kitchen by a friend.
Around 4 p.m., Metro police spotted the vehicle and a chase ensued. Khwaga, who authorities say was driving, failed to make a curve on Mt. View Road and crashed.
Police say Khwaga and both of the Williams brothers were taken into custody at the scene.
Jalean Williams first fled the car with two pistols and a plastic tub of marijuana. He was reportedly captured after a foot chase.
Metro police also said they found four guns inside the car.
The three are believed to be connected to Thursday evening’s shooting of Cianan Napier, 20, who was shot and killed on Patricia Drive.
Khwaga and Markeil Williams were charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, possession of marijuana for resale, four counts of unlawful gun possession, and both felony and misdemeanor counts of evading arrest.
The two counts of aggravated robbery stem from a home invasion case late Friday morning on Cedar Pointe Parkway.
Jalean Williams was charged with possession of marijuana for resale, four counts of unlawful weapon possession and misdemeanor evading arrest.
