Feud Sends Two Teens To Vanderbilt Hospital

Story from Channel 5 NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Thursday morning, two teenage boys were fighting for their lives after being shot overnight. A dispute between two teenage girls over a 21-year-old man started the fight. Detectives learned that the two girls, who are in their late teens, had been sending provocative text messages to each other. They agreed to meet for a confrontation outside the man's home Wednesday night at 625 Castlegate Drive. Both girls brought friends along for the fight at 11:40 p.m. between more than ten individuals. Some of the people involved brought guns, including at least one pistol and one shotgun. Robert Lee Hamlett, who turned 18 Thursday, and Aaron Jamar McKee, 17, were shot. When police got there, the crowd had scattered and some had left the scene. Hamlett was located in a nearby wooded area wearing an orange bandanna over his face. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to treat his gunshot wound. McKee, who had gunshot wounds to his chest and arm, was dumped off at Southern Hills Medical Center by the driver of a red Chevrolet Cobalt. McKee was transferred to Vanderbilt. The driver of the Cobalt has been identified as a 19-year-old woman who was one of the two involved in the original dispute over the man who lives on Castlegate Drive. The Cobalt was located Thursday morning in the 900 block of 33rd Avenue North. There are bullet holes in the body of the car and blood on the interior. The car was impounded by police and is being processed for evidence. To see and hear the video:
