  Email   Print

Wilson County Sheriffs Department is continuing an investigation into the shooting of a man late Wednesday night regarding an allegation of stolen money.

Sheriff Terry Ashe said the incident occurred around 10 p.m., Wednesday, at a residence at 450 Trousdale Ferry Road, Lebanon.

The two residents of the home, Willie Ray Hearn, 60, and Derrick Antonio Johnson Sr., age unknown, had been out socializing and returned home where Hearn accused Johnson of taking some money from him and then reportedly shot him.

Johnson was transported by Wilson County Emergency Management Agency ambulance to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

We have some conflicting statements, Ashe said, regarding the incident from Hearn and Johnson.

Hearn was arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault and was booked into the Wilson County Jail on $75,000 bond. He is to appear in court on March 8.

Ashe said the investigation is continuing in the case which is being led by Sgt. Jeff Johnson and Det. Chris Hodge.
