NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Eleven people were arrested over the weekend as part of Metro Police Hermitage's Precinct's plan to round up those accused of murder and attempted murder.
Metro Police said the suspects arrested were each involved in one of three homicide cases and one was involved in a similar violent crime.
One suspect arrested was 25-year-old Terrell Fields. Fields was indicted in the March 2011 death of Avery Hernandez outside a Nashboro Village apartment building. Hernandez was found dead in his car, after visiting his four-month-old daughter at the hospital. Fields was arrested late Friday night at his home. His bond was set a $750,000.
Police also arrested three men responsible for the December 2011 murder of 27-year-old Calvin Davis Jr. Davis was shot and killed outside his Noah's Landing apartment after a failed drug deal. On Friday a judge indicted 22-year-old Brandon Horton, 20-year-old Daniel White, 19-year-old Joshua Holt and 27-year-old John Travis Baker. Officials arrested Horton, White and Holt, but were unable to locate Baker.
Three more suspects were arrested over the weekend for the January 2012 murder of Jason Covington Jr, a 17-year-old who was killed in the University Court public housing development. On that day in January witnesses told police Covington was arguing with several girls outside when a gunman approached and shot him. On Friday, police arrested 19-year-old Donald Peoples, 19-year-old Cordell Clark and 22-year-old Donnetha Lewis in relation to the crime. Police were still searching for 23-year-old Gabrielle Holmes.
Metro Police also arrested 22-year-old Micheal McDade and 22-year-old Marcus Short. McDade and Short were wanted for an October 2011 shooting in which the victim was critically injured after being shot in the head. Officials said on the night in October, McDade and Short rushed into the home of 25-year-old Earl Kelly and demanded to know where money was located. Kelly fought both the men and ended up being shot in the head. Kelly survived the shooting, but sustained serious injuries.
