A teenager was arrested for the fatal shooting of another teenager in South Nashville.

Police said 16-year-old Jazmine Wheeler reportedly shot 16-year-old Jose Guiterrez on January 15.

Guiterrez was taken by private vehicle to Southern Hills Medical Center at 1:15 that morning with a gunshot wound to the head. He was then transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died.

Before the shooting, detectives said Gutierrez, Wheeler, and several others were driving around looking for vehicles to burglarize.

Wheeler allegedly said that while at the Arbor Knoll Apartments, she was handing Gutierrez a gun from the back seat when it went off, shooting Gutierrez in the head.

Wheeler was arrested Saturday and was being held in juvenile detention.
