12-year-old girl charged in fatal shooting of 16-year-old in Middle Tennessee

MADISON, Tenn. (WKRN) - A 12-year old girl was charged after a fatal shooting of 16-year-old in Middle Tennessee. 

It happened in the Falcon View complex at 201 East Palestine Avenue in Madison around 3:25 a.m. Sunday. 

Metro police said officers arrived to find several juvenile girls at the apartment, which is rented by the 12-year-old’s grandmother.

The grandmother did not know the group of girls left the apartment. The girls went to a nearby parking lot and began pulling on car door handles, according to police. 

The girls reportedly took a loaded semi-automatic pistol from an unlocked vehicle.

They brought the gun back to the apartment. Police believe the 12-year-old held the gun and pointed it at the other girls when it discharged. Brentice Wilson was hit and died at the scene.

The 12-year-old faces charges for criminal homicide. Her identity was not released.
