Lebanon police are searching for two apparent gang members wanted in connection with an early Saturday morning fatal shooting.

Lebanon police Chief Scott Bowen said Derrick Devaughn Carr, 19, of 204 Morgan Meade Court in Nashville, and Shaun Derrick Betty Jr., 20, of 3018 Indiana Ave. in Nashville, are suspects in the shooting death of Andre D. Logue, 30, of Lebanon.

Bowen said active criminal homicide warrants are signed and on file for Carr and Betty. He said both men are known members of the “Tree Top Bloods” gang and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Bowen said officers received a shots fired call at 46 Dedman Street at about 5:31 a.m. He said officers arrived to find a man shot to death at 32 Dedman Street.

Bowen later identified the man as Logue, of 214 Stroud Drive.

According to Bowen, officers found a second shooting victim later Saturday morning at University Medical Center. He said investigators believe Justin L. Johnson, 26, was a resident of and was also shot at 32 Dedman Street. Police said Johnson was driven to the hospital.

A hospital spokesperson said Johnson was treated and released Saturday morning. Bowen said Johnson was not charged or in police custody.

Bowen said anyone with information should call Lebanon police at 615-444-2323.

This is the first shooting death reported in Lebanon since December 2012.
