Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department have asked for the public's help in finding the suspect of the recent shooting at the Nashville MTA Music City Central bus station.

Officers have named 16-year-old Demarcus Amos as a suspect in the shooting that injured four teens.

A Juvenile Court arrest order charging Amos with one count of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault has been issued. 

Efforts to locate Amos at his Hawk View Court home have been unsuccessful, and he was not at his school, Johnson Alternative, Tuesday.

They asked anyone with information on his location to call police at 615-742-7463.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Monday on the top floor near the escalator inside the MTA station.

Javious Chatman, age 18, was critically injured when he was shot in the abdomen. He was in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center Tuesday.

The three other victims, Nathaniel Webb and Jonathan Stoner, both 16, and Jalen Jeffries, age 17, suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police said they suffered graze wounds.

Extra officers have been added to patrol the station and surrounding area to ensure the community's safety.
