CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three juveniles and one adult were taken into custody after multiple shots were fired at a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Deputy.

It happened Friday night at 11:53 p.m.

According to a press release, Deputy Adam Liberatore noticed a suspicious car parked at a church on the corner of Lock B Road and Hickory Point Road. When he started to pull into the church parking lot, the car took off at a high rate of speed.

Deputy Liberatore then made an attempt to pull the car over for speeding, and that’s when the front passenger reportedly fired at the deputy.

Liberatore did not return fire.

Police said the suspects’ car slowed down when it reached Old Ashland City Road, and two passengers jumped out of the backseat and fled on foot.

One of them was a juvenile and the other was identified as 18-year-old Drake Hairrell. Both were taken into custody by Deputy Liberatore.

The driver and front passenger, both of whom were juveniles, were later found by Clarksville Police Department during a traffic stop.

According to authorities, there were two semiautomatic pistols, body armor, and 30 rounds of ammunition inside the car.

The charges for the incident are as follows:

  • The driver will be charged as a juvenile with reckless endangerment and felony evading.
  • The front passenger will be charged as a juvenile with reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.
  • Drake Hairrell has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His bond was set at $250.

The rear passenger was cited for curfew violation and released into the custody of his parents.
