According to authorities, surveillance video shows 18-year-old Javious Chatman exiting an escalator inside the bus station.

Chatman spoke to other people and milled around the bottom of the escalator before a number of shots were fired, according to police spokesman Don Aaron.

The Davidson County Grand Jury has indicted him on charges of attempted first-degree murder, weapon possession, and three counts of aggravated assault. The indictment states Amos tried to intentionally, with premeditation, kill Chatman.

Amos is due in court this Wednesday.
