Nashville bus stop killing suspect was under DCS supervision

The Department of Children’s Services was supposed to be keeping an eye on Eric Goodner on April 11, the day police say he fatally shot a fellow Pearl-Cohn High School student.

But DCS had not seen or talked to the teenager since February, even though Goodner was under a home supervision program after being released in December from the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center.

That April morning, police say, Goodner shot classmate Johnathan Johnson, 17, as he walked to his school bus stop on 10th Avenue North. Goodner was arrested on a homicide warrant Wednesday after eluding police for weeks.
