More than 5 pounds of cocaine seized during investigation from General Kershaw shooting

OLD HICKORY (TN)- Deputies were dispatched to a residence in Old Hickory on March 31st around 9 p.m. after 911 received a call of shots fired in the area. Upon arrival near the 600 block of General Kershaw Drive, deputies quickly made contact with a male subject who had been shot in the left knee and right leg. The victim was unable to advise if the suspect(s) had left the residence or was still in the immediate area. Cpl. Bryce Beaty immediately applied a tourniquet to the victim’s left leg until medics arrived.

Through the course of the investigation by WCSO detectives, information was developed that presence of drugs were inside the home that the deputies responded to. Detectives worked quickly to get a search warrant issued for the residence. The warrant was executed where a large amount of narcotics and weapons were located. One of the weapons seized was originally stolen from a vehicle burglary out of Lewisburg, TN.

“During the course of the investigation through the interviews that were conducted by detectives, this incident appears to be drug related,” stated Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan. “There were large amounts of illegal drugs inside the home that included crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, various pills and marijuana. Numerous weapons were also found inside the residence as well as items commonly associated with drug trade.”

Detectives will be consulting with the District Attorney’s Office with their findings from the investigation for prosecution of the incident that occurred.
