19-year-old Ethan Bezuidenhout was one of four teens shooting firearms from a home on McCrory Lane in Nashville on May 24. They were shooting in the direction of a nearby home that faced Poplar Creek Road, where officers responded to a shots-fired call in progress at 7 p.m. The victims told police they were in their driveway when they heard gunshots and a whistling noise over their heads as the bullets flew past them, striking the branches directly above their heads. The victims took cover, and officers arrived and continued to hear gunshots from across the road. Officers tracked the gunfire to a home on McCrory Lane, where Bezuidenhout admitted to firing at paper targets and now knowing what was behind them in the path of the bullets. He was also in possession of a vape pen, which he used in the presence of officers.
