Arrest in shooting of 10 at National Guard armory in Tennessee


DETROIT — Federal authorities have arrested the man accused of shooting 10 people at a party at a National Guard Armory in western Tennessee.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says in a news release that 20-year-old Kyanedre Benson was arrested Monday by U.S. Marshals in Detroit. The Jackson, Tennessee, man is being held without bond while he awaits an extradition hearing in Wayne County, Michigan.

U.S. Marshals tracked him down in the Motor City and arrested him without incident, reports CBS Memphis, Tennessee affiliate WREG-TV.

Benson is facing 10 counts of attempted murder in connection with a shooting that occurred when a fight broke out at the armory in Brownsville late Friday night.

TBI spokeswoman Susan Niland says two juveniles and eight adults were wounded. None of the injuries is believed to be life-threatening.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Benson has an attorney.
