A shooting Sunday night at the Pilot Travel Center parking lot on Murfreesboro Road in Lebanon left two teens dead and one suspected shooter in police custody.

Lebanon officers were dispatched to the gas station at about 9:10 p.m. When they arrived, they found Jacob E. Doughten, 19, of Lebanon, with gunshot wounds. Wilson Emergency Management Agency paramedics took Doughten in critical condition to Tennova Healthcare-Lebanon, where he was later pronounced dead. 

A second shooting victim, a 15-year-old boy, was taken by personal vehicle to Tennova, where he was later pronounced dead. 

According to Lebanon police spokesperson Sgt. P.J. Hardy, Lebanon police caught a 17-year-old boy, who police believe was the shooter, at a nearby restaurant. Hardy initially said there was a second suspect in the shooting, but he said Monday morning that wasn’t the case. 

Wilson County sheriff’s deputies assisted at the scene Sunday night. 

The incident remained under investigation.
