Nashville Drive-By Shooting Injures 2 At Funeral For 19-Year Old Woman Who Was Fatally Shot Earlier This Month

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A drive-by shooting in Nashville on Saturday injured 2 people as they and others were walking out of church from the funeral of a woman who was fatally shot earlier this month.

Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson Don Aaron said the afternoon shooting occurred outside New Season Church, where a funeral service had just ended for 19-year-old Terriana Johnson. The hearse was parked out front with the rear door open & people were filing out of church as the shots began.

Police say they are on the lookout for a black late-model Honda Civic with a temporary tag, from which one shooter or more fired as the car passed by, hitting an 18-year-old woman in the leg & a 25-year-old man in the pelvis. Neither were considered life-threatening injuries.

Some attendees of the funeral services for Johnson — who was not a member of the church that was hosting — were armed and fired back at the car.

The shooting occurred before Johnson’s body was brought out of the church & her burial took place later in the afternoon.

Authorities remain on the lookout for a 17-year-old charged with criminal homicide in Johnson’s fatal shooting on Nov. 14 at Watkins Park. Police allege that the teen opened fire on a car in which Johnson was riding after Johnson & the suspect’s sister were involved in a fight moments earlier.

Aaron said the shooting “appears to be some type of beef between 2 groups of people,” but not necessarily between members of the 2 families.

“This was just a brazen shooting,” Aaron told reporters. “These persons have no regard for human life at all.”
