The suspect in last night’s shooting on Franklin’s Rucker Avenue is in custody.
Immediately following the shooting, an officer attempted to stop a vehicle seen leaving the area. The driver abandoned his car and fled on foot. Officers and detectives worked tirelessly through the overnight hours and identified 27-year-old Johnny Cameron, of Franklin, as the shooter. Cameron ran from officers a second time, but was captured after a brief foot pursuit.
Cameron, charged with Attempted Criminal Homicide, is being held in the Williamson County Jail on a $103k bond. Cameron is a convicted felon with a history of drug and weapon charges. The motive of the shooting is unclear. The victim, who was shot in the leg, remains hospitalized with a serious injury. A second victim, assaulted during the disturbance, was treated and released.
Police are seeking two additional men in this case. Antonio Whitsey is wanted for simple assault, and Timothy Harris is wanted for Facilitation of a Felony after detectives determined that he handed Cameron the gun used to shoot the victim. If you know where Whitsey or Harris are, you are urged to call Franklin Police.
A Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 is available for information in this case:
