► UPDATE: Suspect identified, charged in Fayette County Subway shooting

OAKLAND, Tenn. — A man was hospitalized in critical condition following a shooting Friday night at a Subway restaurant in Fayette County.

Oakland Police confirmed Tuesday that one person was shot Friday in the parking lot of the Oakland Center. They said one suspect has been arrested and further charges are pending, but did not release the name of the suspect or confirm the name of the victim.

Police said the shooting began with an argument between two people.

Witnesses and concerned citizens at the Oakland shopping center described a chaotic scene playing out in front of Subway.

One woman knows the man who was shot. She asked us not to identify her and to alter her voice due to safety concerns.

The woman said the 38-year-old victim was shot three times, including in the head and the ear. He is in the hospital in critical condition.

“How can somebody almost take the life of somebody and endanger many other citizens,” she said. “Just to be so careless with a weapon.”

According to this woman, the shooting stemmed from an issue between teens and social media.
While one man was hit by the gunfire, she said others could’ve been injured at the normally busy shopping center.

“I mean it’s a Friday night, on the corner is a liquor store, next door is a boutique,” she said.

She wants the person who pulled the trigger to be held accountable. The woman said he has already bonded out of jail. So far, we have not confirmed that information with police.
