On April 19, 2018, at approximately 1:30 pm, Lebanon Police Department officers received a medical call of a possible drug overdose in the area of 118 Webster Lane. After receiving a second call, officers located an unresponsive female at lot 38. While officers and medical personal were at lot 38, LPD Officers conducted a protective sweep of the residence for safety. During that protective sweep, officers observed a large quantity of US Currency and plastic baggies containing suspected narcotics. After medical clearance, the suspected victim/offender was identified as Sharnotto Sells. LPD Officers requested Narcotics Detectives to respond to the scene. Detectives from both Lebanon Police and the Wilson County Sheriffs Office responded and later obtained a search warrant for the residence. A search of the residence revealed heroin, cocaine, marijuana, paraphernalia, a hand gun, and over $2,000 dollars in cash. Further investigation is pending and the case will be presented to the Wilson County Grand Jury. This incident occurred in three drug free school zones.

As the investigation of the shooting incident at Pilot Gas Station unfolds, we have additional information to release. We recognize that there has been a lot of speculation and inquiry about the case. Understand that we must do our due diligence to confirm information and release it in a manner that doesn’t jeopardize the investigation, allows us to be mindful of the families involved, and keeps the process as transparent as possible. The following is the most up to date information available: We can confrm that this incident was a robbery/drug deal gone bad. Three individuals in one vehicle agreed to meet with an individual in the other vehicle at Pilot on Murfreesboro Rd. However, that individual arrived with three others in the car. The meeting was to sell an agreed amount of drugs, and when the parties met for the exchange, the investigation shows a gun was pulled and a robbery was attempted to take the drugs. This action led to an exchange of gun fire between persons from each car, which resulted in the death of Jacob Ethan Doughten, as well as the death of a 15 yo male. At this time, there has been one arrest of a 17 year old juvenile. The investigation shows that Doughten and the 17 year old juvenile were both armed, and the only two who fired shots. The identities of others involved are not being released at this time, as we are in discussions with the District Attorney’s Office on potential additional charges.

Lebanon Special School District will be presenting a suicide prevention and awareness program next Tuesday at Walter J Baird Middle School. We encourage all to attend.

Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan added, “We will continue to pursue these drug dealers and work with local agencies to hold these violators accountable.” Indictments that were served this morning included the following individuals: James Z. York, Nick Pajan, Deisah R. Andrews, Courtney N. Caldwell, Marki D. Bettencourt, Nicholas V. Raines, Isiah C. Manier, Jalonzo J. Bishop, Ali D. Talley, James C. Roach, Roderick F. Brooks, Michael D.
