Male Juvenile Charged in Connection to White County Shooting

A joint investigation led to the arrest of a male juvenile in connection with a shooting death Thursday night.

TBI Special Agents, the office of the 13th District Attorney General, and the White County Sheriff’s Department investigated a shooting death that occurred at a residence on Crossville Highway in Sparta.

A joint investigation into a White County shooting led to the arrest of a 14-year-old male.

In responding to a 911 call, deputies found a 47-year-old deceased male with a gunshot wound.

During the investigation, authorities determined that a male juvenile who lived in the home was responsible for the death.

Officials charged the minor with voluntary manslaughter via a juvenile petition on Thursday.

The 14-year-old is currently in juvenile detention.

A hearing on the incident will go before a Juvenile Court judge on Monday.
