A Hixson man was arrested Tuesday on charges of attempted murder and aggravated kidnapping for an incident in 2013 where police said he pulled a gun on three people he was hanging out with at a house in Red Bank, telling them to get on the floor.

The three victims said Terrance "Alex" Palmer admitted to not having a motive. They said he told them, "I just feel like doing something (expletive) up." 

Zachary Smith, a young man at the house during the incident, said he had shot pool with Palmer several times before. Mr. Smith said he had called before coming by that day, but acted nervous when he arrived.

Mr. Smith said the defendant asked them where the bathroom was.

However, he said when he came out, he was carrying a semiautomatic pistol. 

He said Palmer told him to give him his belongings. Palmer took his wallet and the cell phones of all three victims.

According to police, after Palmer made the victims get on the floor, he decided to leave. They described him driving off in a dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Nissan Versa. 

For the attempted murder charge, bond was set at $500,000. For aggravated kidnapping and reckless endangerment, bond was set at $150,000 for each.

Palmer is scheduled to appear in court on July 28.
