NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police arrested three teens after they robbed and shot a 14-year-old who was trying to sell vape cartridges from them.

Clarksville Police officials said the teen met up with a 14, 16, and 17-year-old to purchase vaping cartridges for $60.00. The three teens planned to take the cartridges without paying and one of them brought a gun from their home without their parents' knowledge.

When they met around 3:40 in the morning, the group got in a fight and at some point the gun was fired and the teen was hit in the hip area. The victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, treated and released.

Police arrested the three teens Monday. They were charged with especially aggravated robbery.
