NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro officers arrested a man in connection to the juvenile escape last month.

Members of the Metro Nashville Police department's Gang Unit arrested 21-year-old Majok Chol.

Chol was captured as he came out of a Thompson Lane barber shop. He carried a gun that fires rounds capable of piercing body armor.
