NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 19-year-old woman died and her 26-year-old brother was injured in a shooting Tuesday night in Madison.
Metro police said a dispute between Janesia Young and her ex-boyfriend ultimately led to the deadly gunfire on Village Trail shortly before 8:30 p.m.
A press release states the investigation showed Young and her ex-boyfriend, 24-year-old Andre Jones, made arrangements to meet at a market on Murfreesboro Pike so he could return belongings she left at his apartment.
Police say Young took another boyfriend with her to the meeting, 21-year-old Azariah Suttles, and Jones took one of his friends, 29-year-old Jediah Stovall. At some point, a physical fight broke out between Young and Jones. Jones then left with his friend.
According to authorities, Jones and Stovall headed to Village Trail and were followed by Young and Suttles. A short time later, two other cars arrived. Police believe Young summoned those cars after the fight at the market. Her brother, 26-year-old Deangelo Young, was inside one of the cars.
At least one person from inside one of those cars opened fire on Jones. His friend, Stovall, returned fire and was then fired upon as well, Metro police stated.
At some point, authorities say Young was hit and fell to the ground. Her brother was also injured in the crossfire but able to put his sister in his car and drive to an Exxon on Brick Church Pike.
A North Precinct police officer was then flagged down for help. Young, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her brother continues to recover at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Metro police said they have yet to determine whose gunfire hit and killed Young and wounded her brother.
Detectives are continuing in their efforts to identify all of the people who fired shots. Two pistols were recovered from the scene.
