18-year-old Kelexus Simmons was driving a GMC Terrain, which Dylan Young reported stolen, near Claiborne Street on the afternoon of May 6th. Officers located the GMC Terrain on Carrol Street. Officers conducted surveillance until it became mobile, where Air One followed it throughout Nashville until it stopped behind a Claiborne Street residence. Then, Simmons and her juvenile acquaintance were seen running away from the GMC Terrain. Officers then detained them near Charles E. Davis Boulevard and Fain Street. Simmons had the key to the stolen vehicle on her during her arrest. They were interviewed at police headquarters, where Simmons stated she did not know where the car came from and was not involved in taking it. Officers later discovered that she did not have a valid driver’s license. Before officers located the GMC, there was a reported shooting in the area, and the vehicle suffered a bullet hole to the rear passenger door on the driver’s side. Officers also located a shell casing inside the car but had not yet determined if Simmons and her friend were involved. Simmons was taken into custody for theft, evading arrest, and not having a valid driver’s license.
