Chattanooga Police have filed charges against three suspects in the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy found at 1664 Greendale Way on Sunday night. Police were told there was a fight during a robbery attempt and a 17-year-old girl fired the fatal shot.  
 
Jermaine Grant, 20, and the 17-year-old girl are in custody. Jalaycian Barrow, 23, was arrested later on Wednesday.
 
All three suspects are charged with criminal homicide and especially aggravated robbery.
 
The teenager, Isaiah Bush, was shot in the head during a fight on Greendale Way.
 
The suspects left the scene in a white, four-door sedan.
 
Police said they learned from text messages that the 17-year-old girl was working in concert with her boyfriend (Grant) and his friend to rob Bush.
The girl said in the text messages that she was the one that shot the victim.
 
Grant told police that his girlfriend wanted to rob Bush and she persuaded him and Barrow to take part. He said the three of them arrived at the address on Greendale together in a white Ford Fusion. He said he and Barrow got out of the car as Bush approached them.
 
Grant said once they got up from the ground it appeared that Bush was reaching for a gun, and the girlfriend then shot him.
 
Grant said just after the shooting the trio got back in the Fusion and went to the Circle K across from the shooting location. Police said they could be seen on video there just after the time of the shooting.
 
Grant said Bush tried to walk past them, but he grabbed Bush as they rubbed shoulders. He said he, Bush and Barrow fell to the ground in a physical altercation.
 
Police said they were dispatched to 1664 Greendale Way at approximately 11:08 p.m. on Sunday on a person shot call.
 
Upon arrival, police located the victim suffering from a life-threatening gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital via Hamilton County EMS. Chattanooga Police were informed that the victim passed away from injuries sustained in the shooting. 
 
Chattanooga Police ask anyone with information regarding this incident to call 423 698-2525 or submit a tip via the CPD Mobile App. You can remain anonymous.
