CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Police want to find two brothers accused in connection with the shooting of two people during a party at an apartment in Clarksville last week.

Martavious and Marcus Briggs, age 23 and 22, are each wanted on two counts of especially aggravated burglary. Police said both are considered armed and dangerous.

The brothers are accused of entering an apartment on Westfield Court through an unlocked door around 10:30 p.m. on February 1, and opening fire.

When police arrived on the scene, they discovered a chaotic scene with multiple victims and witnesses.

One of the men inside the apartment suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, and another 27-year-old man was found outside on the ground with a gunshot wound to his leg and also a hip injury. A third 18-year-old victim had an injury to her foot after jumping from the balcony. All three were taken to the hospital, and later released.

Police said the victim and witness accounts were varied and changed frequently during interviews, but they learned that several people were inside the apartment playing games, drinking, and some were smoking marijuana before the shooting.

A motive for the shooting was not released.

Police said Martavious Briggs was already on probation for reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.

Anyone who spots Martavious and/or Marcus Briggs should call 911. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPSLINE at 931-645-8477.
