NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Police have arrested a 16-year-old girl in connection with the shooting death of an elderly man in Nashville.
Metro Nashville Police charged Myeisha Brown with criminal homicide in the death of 74-year-old Ruxin Wang on Wednesday.
Wang went outside a Claiborne Street home on November 9 around 4 p.m. to retrieve a trash can when shots were fired.
Witnesses reported seeing several young people run from the scene.
Brown was the 12th juvenile to be arrested and charged with criminal homicide last year in Nashville.

"The whole violence in Nashville is incredibly disturbing at this point. The police department said yesterday that already 99 people have died in Nashville this year. My dad is one of them. He's not just a number. He's our father," the victim's son, Yun Wang, said back in November.
Police said their investigation led them to name Brown as the alleged gunman.
