Two men were taken into custody over the weekend in connection with separate violent home break-ins in Nashville that left a man with gunshot wounds.
Cedrick Earl Johnson, 22, was arrested by police, who say he, along with two accomplices, forced their way into a woman’s Creekwood Drive apartment on May 12 and robbed her a gunpoint.
Metro Police charged Johnson with aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping in the case. The victim was not hurt, according to reports.
For a June 3 robbery, police arrested Terry Dewayne Dickson, 25, for a case where police reported a victim came home and found Dickson burglarizing the property on Morningside Drive. When the victim attempted to flee he was allegedly shot in the back by Dickson.
Dickson is charged with attempted criminal homicide, theft and aggravated burglary.
The victim was treated at Vanderbilt and released.
Dickson, who has prior felony drug and assault convictions, is being held on $62,500 bond. Johnson, who has previous convictions for drug possession, vehicle theft and weapons possession, is being held in lieu of $570,000 bond.
