Authorities are planning to present to a Wilson County grand jury their findings in a Christmas Eve shooting that resulted in the death of a Lebanon student who attended Middle Tennessee State University.
The investigation is continuing into the shooting death of Eric M. Stewart, 18, of 866 Atkinson Road, Lebanon, the location where the incident also occurred.
Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Det. Brian Harbaugh, lead investigator in the case, said “We’ve got several things, interviews to follow up” and are also awaiting the return of lab results.
Once that is done, the information will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office and then to the grand jury.
