Officials in Montgomery County confirmed three juveniles and one adult were taken into custody after multiple shots were fired.

The incident began around 11:53 p.m. Friday outside a church on the corner of Lock B Road and Hickory Point Road.

Deputy Adam Liberatore, who was on patrol, noticed a suspicious vehicle parked at that location.

When the deputy pulled into the parking lot, the vehicle drove away at a high rate of speed onto Lock B Road.

According to reports, the deputy tried to make a traffic stop for speeding, but that’s when the front passenger began firing shots at the deputy and his vehicle.

Authorities confirmed Deputy Liberatore did not return fire.

The vehicle slowed down when it approached Old Ashland City Road, and two passengers from the rear of the vehicle, identified as 18-year-old Drake Hairrell and a juvenile, left the vehicle and fled on foot.

Both were apprehended by Deputy Liberatore.

The driver and front passenger were both juveniles. They were later taken into custody by officers with the Clarksville Police Department during a traffic stop.

Officials said they found two semiautomatic pistols, body armor, and 30 rounds of ammunition in the vehicle.

Reports stated the driver will be charged as a juvenile with reckless endangerment and felony evading, and the front passenger will be charged as a juvenile with reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.

Authorities said the rear juvenile passenger was cited for curfew violation and released into the custody of his parents.

Hairrell has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His bond was set at $250.

Officials confirmed no one was injured and no property was damaged.
