|A defendant wanted for attempted murder of a woman shot and left for dead turned himself in to Chicago authorities this week, a sheriff’s detective said.
Defendant Bryiant C. Overton, 24, of Southeast Broad Street was wanted for attempted first-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery, said Detective Ty Downing.
Sheriff’s fugitive squad Deputies Jack Keisling and Randy Morrow were expected to extradite Overton from Chicago to Rutherford County for prosecution.
Overton was accused of shooting the 29-year-old La Vergne woman multiple times and leaving her for dead Dec. 16 on Beesley Road in the Blackman community, Downing said.
She was riding with the other people in the car.
“The woman was forced out of the car,” Downing said. “She was shot multiple times and basically left for dead. She managed to crawl approximately 50 feet to the roadway where she was found by some citizens.”
The citizens saw her in the road, swerved and stopped to help.
Overton’s co-defendants Robert L. Adams, 34, and his wife, Keisha, 27, of La Vergne were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and robbery and accessory after the fact.
Driver Kristie M. Ray, 33, of La Vergne was charged with accessory after the fact.
Their cases are pending in General Sessions Court.
