NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Two teenagers have been charged in a shooting that took the life of a recent high school graduate at a birthday party.
Metro Police charged 18-year-old Stephen King and 18-year-old William Martin with the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Antwand Covington on Wesleyville Street in southeast Nashville on June 9.
Police said that King, who was wanted for questioning, was found Thursday afternoon in an apartment complex in LaVergne. After being interviewed by police King admitted that he shot Covington, although King said the teen was not the intended target.
