An 18-year-old was shot Saturday evening on Dee Drive, and two people, including a 15-year old boy, have been arrested.

At approximately 6:06 p.m., Chattanooga Police were advised by dispatch that a man had arrived at a local hospital by private vehicle with a gunshot wound. Upon arrival, officers located and confirmed a man was there suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound. 
 
 Officers learned the incident occurred in the 3000 block of Dee Drive. They were able to locate and secure the crime scene. 
 
 Investigators with the Robbery Unit responded to conduct an investigation. Investigators learned that the victim was outside near the above location when he was approached by two people.
The individuals produced firearms and demanded "weed."  When he told them he did not have any weed, they began hitting and punching him. Both of them pulled out guns and began firing at him.
 
 He was shot in the right arm and the left arm and had a graze wound to the chest.
 
The victim said after he was shot the pair told him over and over, "You going to die."
 
Police said they located video from Dee Drive that showed two black males arrive at the time of the shooting and then leave in a white 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. The victim gave Facebook names of the shooters, which corresponded to the pair arrested.
 
They were located at a Domino's pizza along with three other individuals.
Timothy Appleberry, 18, is charged with especially aggravated robbery and a second juvenile suspect, 15, is also charged with especially aggravated robbery. 
 
 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.
