Shots fired near Blackman High School parking lot after basketball game

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two brothers were charged after one reportedly fired rounds into the air during a Tuesday fight outside of a Blackman High School parking lot, which was almost empty.

According to Detective Andrea Butler with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, the brothers — both of whom are minors — are being held at the Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center after being charged with reckless endangerment, carrying a weapon on school grounds, and possession of a stolen gun.

Butler said one of the brothers was robbed by the victim last year.

Authorities said threats were made during the basketball game between Blackman and Riverdale High School, and then a fight started outside after the game on Tuesday, Jan. 30. However, there are no reports of injuries or damages resulting from the incident.

Neither brother is a student at Blackman, Riverdale, or any other Rutherford County school, according to officials.

The sheriff’s office said both brothers were found at their home, questioned, and arrested.

“I appreciate the working relationship with Murfreesboro Police Department officers who apprehended the two suspects and made every effort to do a welfare check on the victim,” Butler said.

Authorities have not shared any details about the victim, but they did say the victim’s parent was asked to meet with law enforcement on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

A hearing for the brothers is set for Wednesday afternoon in Juvenile Court, officials said.
