Second Man Arrested In Connection With House Fire, Shots Fired

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A second man has been arrested in connection with an arson and gunfire in North Nashville.

Metro police said Josh Cowan set fire to the home of Terry and Melissa Knighton on 17th Avenue North. His friend George Steward has been charged with firing shots at the Knightons.

The fire happened Thursday night, just a few hours after police said Stewart shot at the victims. That was apparently the result of Knighton accusing Stewart of selling drugs in the neighborhood.

Police believe Cowan set fire to the Knighton's home in retaliation for getting his friend, Stewart arrested. 

No one was injured in either the shooting or the fire.
