Woman wounds suspected burglar with shotgun

CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF) – Bradley County investigators say it looks like a resident shot a burglar last night inside her home in northeast Bradley County.

She was alone with an infant when she says several men entered her home.

But she had a shotgun and used it as the burglars came down the hallway towards her bedroom.

When deputies arrived, they found evidence that she hit someone with the shot.

25 minutes later, a juvenile showed up at Erlanger East on Gunbarrel Road with a gunshot wound to the arm.

Bradley County officers responded and made contact with the juvenile and the adult who brought him in.

They took the adult, Jaylen Terrell Johnson back to Cleveland for questioning.

Investigators ended up charging Johnson with Aggravated Burglary and Aggravated Assault.

The juvenile is still in the hospital, but authorities say more charges are pending.
