One of two teenagers shot and killed at the Pilot Travel Station in Lebanon Tennessee has been identified by family members as “Ethan Doughten,” contradicting local news reports who named the victim as “Jacob Doughten.”

The double fatal shooting, that took the life of Doughten, 19, and another unnamed 15-year-old male, occurred at the gas station located at, 921 Murfreesboro Rd, Lebanon, TN, near Interstate 40, at about 9:10 p.m. Sunday.


The following report naming “Jacob Doughten” as the victim appeared in an article on the newschannel5 website. The report stemmed from a media release from the Lebanon Police Department.

Investigators said they found 19-year-old Jacob Doughten at the scene with gunshot wounds. He was taken to Tennova Hospital Lebanon where he died of his injuries.

Later, investigators said another shooting victim was driven to the same hospital in a private vehicle. Officers said that 15-year-old male also died of his injuries from the shooting.

Investigators said they arrested a teenager in connection with the shooting. He was found at a restaurant not far from the shooting scene.

It was unclear if there were other people wanted for this crime. Investigators had not revealed a possible motive for the shooting. source

A woman identifying herself as Ethan Doughten’s mother, posted a GoFundMe page asking for help with his funeral expenses:

I’m trying to raise money for my sons funeral cost. He was shot and killed last night. I have no life insurance and I’m trying to figure out what to do. Anything will help with this part of life I wish I had my son back and this nightmare didn’t happen. I appreciate anything given.
Thanks in advance.
