Zachary Ryan Nave, 21, was killed Friday night in a shooting that occurred about 9:20 p.m. in his residence at 2415 107 Cutoff, according to Sheriff's Detective Sgt. James Randolph.

Two other men were wounded in the shooting, Sheriff Steve Burns said this afternoon.

The sheriff said the shootings took place in the basement area of the residence.

Burns said investigators had not yet determined who fired the shots that killed Nave and wounded the two other men.

But he said an exchange of gunshots between the two groups of people took place.

The sheriff also said a quantity of marijuana was found at the residence.

Sgt. Randolph identified the wounded men as:

* Brendan A. Royer, also of 2415 107 Cutoff, who was shot in the foot and flown Friday night by Wings Air Rescue to the Johnson City Medical Center, and;

* Travis D. Monroe 20, of Freshour Trailer Park in Chuckey, who was shot four times in a reported confrontation with Nave and Royer, and was in JCMC's intensive-care unit on Saturday afternoon.

Travis D. Monroe is the man who was brought to Laughlin Memorial Hospital on Friday night suffering from gunshot wounds, officers said. He was transferred to JCMC.

Travis D. Monroe is a suspect in Nave's death, according to Sgt. Randolph.

Sgt. Randolph said two other suspects in the shooting were arrested about 12:30 p.m. this afternoon and were being questioned.

They are Kenneth Monroe, 22, and Gregory Anderson, 21, both also of Freshour Trailer Park. Both of the Monroes and Anderson previously lived in the Knoxville area according to the sheriff's department.

An EMS supervisor said Saturday that Nave's body has been sent to East Tennesee State University School of Medicine for an autoposy.

Sgt. Randolph said an unidentified woman picked up Kenneth Monore and Anderson at Freshour Trailer Park about 10 p.m. Friday and took them to an address on Babbs Mill Road, where the two men were arrested on Saturday afternoon.

Sgt. Randolph said investigators were working Saturday afternoon "to piece together" exactly how the Friday night shooting incident took place.

He said charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
