Tennessee 18-Year-old Dead - No Charges

According to police, 18-year-old William Blackwell was visiting a home on the 2300 block of Woodridge Drive when the shooting happened on March 17.
Witnesses told police Blackwell was holding a .25-caliber pistol that belonged to 18-year-old Robert Goodner when Goodner told Blackwell the safety was off and asked for the gun back.
Goodner told police he mishandled the gun after it was given back to him and it went off, hitting Blackwell in the neck.
The two have been best friends since they were young children, and police say by all accounts the shooting was a terrible accident.
  • William Blackwell, 18, of Nashville, passed away Sunday after he was shot by a friend last week. No charges have been filed against 18-year-old Robert Goodner, the best friend police said was holding the gun when it went off.
