A 20-year-old man was arrested Monday night in Detroit by federal agents investigating a Tennessee shooting, according to officials.

Authorities say 10 people were injured in a shooting at a party at a National Guard Armory in Brownsville, Tenn.

Kyanedre Benson, of Jackson, Tennessee, allegedly opened fire at a private party around 11:45 p.m. Friday at the National Guard Armory in Brownsville, in western Tennessee, authorities said in a statement released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. He was arrested without incident by U.S. Marshals in Detroit and has been charged with 10 counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Two juveniles and eight adults were wounded in the shooting, TBI spokeswoman Susan Niland said. None of the injuries were life-threatening and all victims have been released from area hospitals.

Investigators "developed information that led them to Detroit, where the defendant was ultimately located," Niland said. "But we can’t provide the specifics of what that entailed."

The suspect was being held Tuesday without bail in Wayne County to await an extradition hearing to Tennessee. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
