Three arrests were made this week in relation to the tragic shooting death of 13-year-old C'Asia Patton, of Lebanon, which took place in January 2015.

Marvin Andre Bryant, 20, was taken into custody in relation to the shooting on Tuesday as he was entering a Wilson County courtroom on an unrelated incident.

Lebanon Police Chief Mike Justice said officers knew Bryant was going to be in court that date for a child-support hearing.

"All of our detectives have worked on this since Day 1. A lot of these guys have kids, and it's been on their hearts," Justice said.

On Thursday afternoon LPD announced two additional arrests - Timothy Lorenzo Wade Jr, 25. of Nashville and Bailey Alexander Underwood, 20, of Lebanon.

Wade was taken into custody without incident by Metro-Nashville Police Department's Gang Unit and brought to Lebanon. He is currently being held in Wilson County Jail under a $1 million bond on charges of first degree murder, premeditated first degree murder and four counts of aggravated assault.

Underwood was also charged for his participation in the murder - with charges of accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence. He is being held at the Wilson County Jail.

Joseph Hendry, now 21, was the first person charged in 2015.

Hendry was arrested at a Brentwood hotel in the same month as the January 5, 2015 shooting. His trial is scheduled to begin with a motions hearing on March 6.

Patton was a seventh-grader at Winfree Bryant Middle School at the time of her death. She passed away on January 8, 2015 as a result of injuries from the drive-by shooting.

Patton had been asleep in her bed on the night of the shooting and was fatally wounded by one of several bullets directed at the home on Sycamore Street.
