The 16-year-old Hillwood High School student arrested in late August for the fatal May shooting outside the Sultan Cafe on Nolensville Road has been charged as an adult.

Ladarius Bryant faces charges homicide, attempted homicide, reckless endangerment and handgun possession charges in the May 15 shooting outside of the café in the Kroger shopping center at 3955 Nolensville Pike.

A bullet hit Kowan Choli Ahmad, 22, in the neck after a dispute at a private party inside the restaurant, and he died 10 days later.

Detectives arrested Bryant on Aug. 25. He had been charged in juvenile court, but on Monday, police charged him in adult criminal court.

Police said Bryant admitted to shooting several times into a crowd gathered outside the restaurant on May 15.

Seems reasonable to me that a Hillwood student from an evironment totally foreign to the neighborhood should be tried for murder.

The headline should have read "punk to be tried for murder"

Missing from today's comments on this story: all those commentors last week who were cheering for magnet schools, how Metro Schools are improving, etc. Where are you people now?

So, once again, you manage to mention Hillwood in connection with a crime that was committed miles away, outside of school hours and not in connection with any school activity.

And, quelle suprise, you get the comments you have elicited so far.

One person natters on like students are bussed to Hillwood from a foreign country and another believes the actions of one person indict the entirety of public schools.

Good job.
