Two Arrested After Child Takes Balloon, Shots Fired

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Clarksville said a two-year-old child took a balloon from a house for sale and the incident escalated into gunfire and felony arrests.

22-year-old James Bagwell and a juvenile are being held in jail after the incident on Barkwood Drive Monday evening.

After the child plucked the balloon, an argument broke out and some of those involved got into a car and tried to leave.

The police report said another car with five males inside blocked the sedan and people got out and started shooting. Police found bullet holes in the sedan and in a nearby house. No one was hit.

Bagwell later turned himself in and was charged with attempted criminal homicide. A 16-year-old boy was held in a juvenile center.

Police said more arrests were expected.
