2 arrested after child takes balloon, shots fired


CLARKSVILLE (AP) - Police in Clarksville say a 2-year-old child took a balloon from a house for sale and the incident escalated into gunfire and felony arrests.

According to The Leaf-Chronicle, a 22-year-old man and a juvenile are being held in jail after the incident Monday evening.

After the child plucked the balloon, an argument broke out and some of those involved got into a car and tried to leave.

The police report said another car with five males inside blocked the sedan and people got out and started shooting. Police found bullet holes in the sedan and in a nearby house. No one was hit.

James Antonio Bagwell later turned himself in and is charged with attempted criminal homicide. A 16-year-old boy is being held in a juvenile center.
