    Five suspects arrested after shooting at Metro police, evading arrest

    A dangerous night for Metro Police led to shots fired, a wild chase across county lines and spike strips put down to catch the suspects.

    Metro Police say officers were conducting surveillance on Howertown Street at 11 p.m. when someone started shooting at them and drove off. Photos from police showed at least 20 shell casings on the ground.

    A Metro Police helicopter tracked them as they made their way down I-40 and then they asked Mount Juliet Police for help. Mt. Juliet deployed spikes as the suspects exited I-40 onto Golden Bear Gateway causing their car to stop at Volunteer Blvd.

    All five suspects ran into the nearby woods, but they were caught within an hour. Law enforcement tells us that all of those five suspects are from Nashville and are now booked at the Davidson County Jail. No officers were hurt when the shots were fired.

    The arrest happened due to collaborative efforts from Mt. Juliet officers, Wilson County deputies, Metro-Nashville, THP, and Lebanon officers.





    This club witnessed the early days of the AIDS crisis and decided to do something about it.

    Amidst their own grief and facing hatred these gentlemen worked to save lives. Forrest Sanders brings us a history lesson that's ripple effects are still evident across Nashville.
