Three Charged With Committing Federal Firearms Offenses In Nashville's JC Napier and University Court Public Housing Areas

A federal grand jury has indicted three Nashville, Tenn. men for separate crimes involving federal firearms offenses in the J.C. Napier and University Court public housing developments, announced David Rivera, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.

Michael Calloway aka Oso, 20, was charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition.  Charging documents allege that on April 12, 2015, near the intersection of Lewis St. and Robertson St., in Nashville, Calloway fired several shots at an individual, striking him in the leg with one of the bullets.

Jacarlvis Marable, 22, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Charging documents allege that Marable stole a Glock handgun from Gun City USA in Nashville on February 14, 2015.

Deshon Burleson aka C-Shawn, 28, was charged with being a felon in possession of two firearms.  Charging documents allege that on October 21, 2014, Burleson was in the housing projects and fled into one of the apartments to evade a Metro Nashville Police officer, who had observed a handgun in the waistband of Burleson’s pants.  

All three defendants are in custody and face up to ten years in prison if convicted.

An indictment is merely an accusation.  All defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

The cases were investigated by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.  The cases are being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sunny A.M. Koshy.
