Two men were arrested last week in connection with an incident involving shots fired into a Maryville home early Tuesday morning.
Dwaine Anthony Love, 19, Biddle Street, Maryville; and Tyrone Diuan Tumlin, 18, Knoxville, were arrested on charges of aggravated assault. Love was released on $5,000 bond pending a 9 a.m. Tuesday hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court. Tumlin was being held in lieu of $25,000 bond pending a 9 a.m. Tuesday hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court.
Maryville Police had been looking for the two men as persons of interest in connection with an incident where a car had driven by a Carlton Court residence in the early morning hours of Tuesday and fired two shots into the home.
The first bullet nearly struck a 26-year-old man in the house.
Officers were able to locate the suspect vehicle not long after the incident on Bishop Street. A 17-year-old juvenile girl and 20-year-old Latrice Javon Booker, of Bishop Street, Alcoa, were taken into custody on aggravated assault charges.
Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp announced shortly after the incident that authorities were still searching for two men as persons of interest in the incident. They were both located Wednesday, arrested and charged with aggravated assault for their alleged involvement in the incident.
