Metro Police identified two brothers who were killed, 18-year-old Zacquez Sherrell and 15-year-old Tavarius Sherrell.
Their mother, two sisters and brother were also shot but were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment and expected to recover, according to police.
A third deceased shooting victim, 29-year-old Christian Johnson, is believed to be one of the suspects who entered the apartment on Friday night.
