"I heard some tires squealing and I thought it was unusual for 4:30am," says McKinney.
Fire trucks, ambulances, and police surrounded an apartment on Vista Lane.
"Generally this is a very nice area," says McKinney.
"When they got here he was inside of the house," says Clarksville Police Officer Jim Knoll.
Police say a 15 year old boy had been shot in the head, and although he was conscious, he was in critical condition. The teen was airlifted to Vanderbilt as police began their investigation.
"We do have information to believe that there is no danger to the community," says Officer Knoll.
Investigators soon turned their attention to the teenager's older brother. Police say 23 year old Brian Smith initially tried to mislead them, saying he was walking outside when he heard the gunshot. Detectives now believe Smith and several other people were inside the apartment. Police claim Smith pointed the gun at his brother's head and pulled the trigger. Neighbors say it's surprising, since a police station is very close by.
"It's very scary to think you can live on top of a police precinct and something like this can happen so close to you, but you never know," says McKinney.
No one brother has died, as another sits in jail. Police had charged Brian Smith with Reckless Endangerment and Tampering with Evidence. We're told he's now been served with a warrant for Criminal Homicide.
