Metro Police have charged 17-year-old Antwan Palmer Jr. and 19-year-old Talisia Muse with Thursday evening’s armed carjacking outside a South Nashville apartment complex.
The 23-year-old victim told officers that he was outside the Burger King restaurant, 363 Harding Place, at 6 p.m. Thursday when Palmer and Muse approached and asked him for a ride to a Wallace Road apartment complex. Once there, the victim said he was pistol whipped and robbed of his 2006 gray Cadillac. He also said a shot was fired at his feet as Palmer and Muse fled.
Responding officers learned that the victim was financing the Cadillac from a local auto lot. Staff there tracked the car to Lavergne. Lavergne Police located the Cadillac and tried to stop it. Palmer took off and led Lavergne officers on a pursuit before crashing on Stonecrest Parkway in Smyrna. Both Palmer and Muse were taken into custody uninjured at the crash scene. A .22 caliber pistol was recovered from the Cadillac, which was reported stolen from a gun store in Chattanooga.
Palmer is charged at juvenile detention with aggravated robbery, unlawful gun possession, theft, and driving without a license. Muse is charged with carjacking, theft, gun possession during a violent crime, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her bond is set at $52,000.
