A fourth man has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old in Nashville.

Metro Nashville Police said 21-year-old Mohamed Miray is the fourth person arrested in the death of Deberianah Begley. He’s been charged with first-degree felony murder.  

Begley was shot and killed on South 8th Street in the James Cayce public housing development back on October 8 when one group of young men fired shots toward another group.

She was sitting on a porch and was struck in the neck when she tried to run for cover.

Police said Miray was taken into custody during a traffic stop Monday evening at 18th Avenue North and Clarksville Pike. He was held in lieu of $500,000 bond.

Three other suspects, 16-year-old Jamarius Hill, 17-year-old Antonio Gordon-Jenkins and 23-year-old Tomaz Kerley, have also been charged in the case.
