18-Year-Old Arrested After Bystander Shot During Gunfight

A woman was injured by stray gunfire during a shootout on Clarksville Pike.

An 18-year-old man, Jakari Waters, was arrested after a bystander was struck by a stray bullet during a shootout on Clarksville Pike in Nashville. The shooting occurred after Waters got into a verbal altercation with another man near the Little Barn Market. Both men drew weapons and opened fire on each other.

During the exchange of gunfire, a 30-year-old woman working in her food truck parked nearby was hit in the leg. She was taken to Skyline Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Specialized Investigations detectives recognized Waters from previous shooting incidents. Surveillance footage showed him leaving the scene in a Nissan Murano, which had been reported stolen on March 28th from an apartment complex parking garage on 21st Avenue North.

Detectives located the stolen vehicle and Waters at his home on Lindsey Meadows Court shortly after the shooting. However, the firearm used in the incident was not recovered.

Waters was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and vehicle theft. He is currently being held on $50,000 bond, with additional charges anticipated.
