One was Antioch High School student, Wilson sheriff says By Deborah Highland • THE TENNESSEAN • May 26, 2010 An Antioch High School student and another man are dead after a shootout on Stewarts Ferry Pike in Wilson County near the Davidson County line, authorities said. The incident began about 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe. A black man believed to be in his early 20s was found shot to death in a late-model, gray Chevrolet Impala that had wrecked into a creek on Stewarts Ferry Pike. The 17-year-old Antioch High School student was wounded and then dumped on Hobson Pike just across the county line in Davidson County, Ashe said. Wilson County Sheriff's Sgt. Ronnie Crowe was on his way to work when he saw the teen being left on the roadside. A white GMC or Chevrolet SUV with a drive-out tag sped away from the scene as Crowe was trying to administer CPR, Ashe said. "This altercation took place on Stewarts Ferry Pike," the sheriff said. Investigators were looking for the SUV Tuesday evening. Deputies established the identity of one of the victims and were working to identify the other. No names were being released until family members were notified. Two female witnesses were in custody for questioning, Ashe said.
