NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A teenager faces charges of attempted murder after a 20-year-old was shot in the chest Monday night at the downtown Nashville bus terminal.

Metro police say Louis Wrice, 20, had been involved in a verbal dispute with the 17-year-old just the day before.

The two came across each other at Music City Central on Charlotte Avenue when the teen reportedly shot Wrice about 9:15 p.m.

The teenager, who ran away after the shooting, was quickly identified by name and officers throughout the city were notified to be on the lookout for him.

According to a press release, Officer John Daugherty was familiar with the 17-year-old and spotted him walking from the immediate downtown area along Lafayette Street. Officer Daugherty took the teen into custody.

A semi-automatic pistol was recovered from the area where the teen was first spotted.

He was charged early today with attempted murder at Juvenile Court.
