Update (7:15 p.m.): The Brentwood Police Department announced the arrest of 20-year-old Kequan Lameal Waller, of Nashville, following Thursday's manhunt.

According to a BPD news release, officers initially responded to a reported motor vehicle burglary in the River Oaks subdivision and began searching for the suspects who were still in the area. 

"As the search unfolded, officers discovered that there were several more vehicle burglaries, a home burglary, and reports of gunfire in the area," the news release reads. "We also learned that a homeowner’s pet dog had been shot."

Officers arrested Waller behind a home on Grand Oaks Drive and located a .380 caliber semiautomatic pistol and a vehicle stolen from Nashville, but they did not find the second suspect. 

Police report that Waller has a "extensive criminal history," and he has been charged by BPD with theft over $10,000 and being a felon in possession of a firearm, and more charges are pending as detectives continue their investigation.

"Brentwood citizens were instrumental in helping officers locate the suspect," the news release reads. "Police also want to thank a local veterinarian for saving the life of the beloved pet Gus who remains in stable condition."



Original story (Noon 09/23/21):

The Brentwood Police Department arrested one person after a morning manhunt that caused shelter-in-place orders for several neighborhoods.

Residents began receiving a robocall around 11:20 a.m. where residents were warned to shelter in place while police searched for an “armed burglary suspect.”

At 12:17 p.m., BPD tweeted out that one unidentified person was in custody, and they were continuing to search for another identified person near the 500 block of Grand Oaks Drive. 

According to BPD, the two people are suspected of burglarizing vehicles, and by 12:21 p.m., the shelter in place order had been lifted, with police announcing that a witness saw a person, believed to be the second suspect, get into a vehicle and leave the area. 

No other information about the incident, the search or the arrests was available, but this story will be updated.
