Angel Chatman is in custody, and Travonda Chatman is now wanted, after a North Nashville funeral home brawl involving pistols, knives, and hitting a man with a vehicle.

Arrest warrants charging felony aggravated assault have been issued against two sisters for a dispute this afternoon at a North Nashville funeral home that resulted in the non-critical stabbing of the deceased’s sister. Other family members of the deceased reported they were threatened with guns, while a brother of the deceased was pinned between the sisters’ SUV and a pickup truck.

Angel Chatman, 28, the ex-girlfriend of the deceased, and her sister, Travonda Chatman, 26, arrived at Terrell Broady Funeral Home on Clarksville Pike for visitation at 1 p.m. They were told by family members that they were not welcome there. The parties began to argue, during which Angel Chatman was reported to have pulled a knife and cut the sister of the deceased on her back. The Chatman sisters are then alleged to have pulled pistols and threatened the deceased’s mother and uncle.
