The third and final suspect in Friday’s shooting has been arrested. Timothy Harris turned himself in to the Williamson County Jail yesterday, where he remains on a $50,000 bond. Harris, charged with Facilitation of a Felony, is accused of handing the shooter, Johnny Cameron, his gun – which was used to shoot the victim.
At 11:40 Friday night, police were summoned to the 100 block of Rucker Avenue after one person was shot during a disturbance. The victim, who was transported to an area hospital in serious condition, has improved and is now listed as stable. A second victim was assaulted, and also taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.
Immediately following the shooting, an officer attempted to stop a vehicle seen leaving the area. The driver, Johnny Cameron, abandoned his car and fled on foot. He was captured during a second foot pursuit a short time later. Cameron, charged with Attempted Criminal Homicide, remains jailed on a $103,000 bond. Cameron is a convicted felon with a history of drug and weapon charges.
Antonio Whitsey, who was wanted for Assault, turned himself in Saturday night. Whitsey, a convicted felon, is free on a $2,500 bond and due in court 02/12/2015 at 1:00pm.
The pistol used in Friday’s shooting remains unaccounted for. Detectives fear that it may have been thrown out of a vehicle somewhere along the West Main Street corridor. Detectives have scoured the area, but have been unable to locate the gun. Police urge parents to use this case as an opportunity to talk to kids about what to do if they ever come across a gun: Do not pick it up or touch it, and immediately go and tell an adult, or call 911.
