Witnesses told officers three people showed up to the party and were denied entrance. Authorities said one individual allegedly made a comment about “shooting at the place.”

Shortly after, multiple shots were fired outside the house.

Calvin Scott Jr., 20, was shot in the head. Police said he was sitting in a car with his girlfriend when he heard the shots and was hit when he stepped out to investigate.

He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was last listed in very critical condition.

Metro police said that although Scott was armed when he was shot, it does not appear he fired his weapon.

Chase Stevenson, a 19-year-old student at TSU, was shot in the buttocks and also taken to Vanderbilt. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

The third victim, 20-year-old Aaron Bachelor, was shot in his left arm. The Nashville State Community College student was treated and released from Centennial Medical Center.

After the shooting, witnesses reported the three suspects fled the area on foot.

The suspects are described as:

  • A black male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 220 pounds with a fade haircut, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and beige pants
  • A black male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 160 pounds with dreadlocks, wearing a purple hooded sweatshirt
