Zaniel Radley was shot in the leg just before 9 p.m. when an unknown number of suspects passed by in a vehicle and began firing numerous shots at the house.
Although nearly 10 people were at the house when the incident occurred, no one else was injured, according to officials with the Murfreesboro Police Department incident.
Despite the number of witnesses who were at the house when the shooting occurred, officials said Wednesday few have agreed to cooperate with the investigation.
“There is little information coming to investigators from witnesses,” said Sgt. Kyle Evans, public information officer for the Police Department.
Detectives have been able confirm that the suspects intended to harm someone who was at the home that night. However, it remains unclear whether they meant to shoot Radley, who does not live at the home.
“It may have been targeted to the area or individuals involved,” Evans said.
Even so, he said the shooting “was not random.”
As of Thursday, no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the shooting.
Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867.
