Nashville Police: Two charged in shooting that injured children getting off school bus

Nashville police have arrested two suspects after two children were shot while getting off a school bus.

Sylvester Buford, 22, was taken into custody Tuesday and booked into the Downtown Detention Center shortly before 11:30 a.m. Two days later, a 17-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the case. He has not been identified.

Police said a 16-year-old and 6-year-old were getting off a bus Sept. 11 in the Cumberland View neighborhood when they got caught in crossfire between Buford and another person in a Honda Accord.

The teen was taken to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital with a gunshot wound to the right shoulder. The 6-year-old suffered a graze wound to the back, police said, noting the 17-year-old is believed to be responsible for the shot that grazed the 6-year-old.

It's Buford's gunfire investigators believe injured the teen, police said.

According to Buford's arrest affidavits, the shooting was caught on multiple cameras in the neighborhood.

"The defendant is observed firing a semi-automatic pistol in a densely populated MDHA neighborhood," the document said. "Residents of the MDHA property were outside of their homes and the others occupied their residences at the time of the shooting."

Buford was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, one for firing in an "occupied habitation," and a count of aggravated assault.

The 17-year-old's charges were not specified.
