A Rhea County man has been indicted by a Davidson County grand jury for first-degree murder. Court officials say 28-year-old Daniel Clark of Dayton was additionally indicted for first-degree premeditated murder, especially aggravated robbery and attempted theft of a vehicle. Clark allegedly shot 58-year-old John Daniel Stevens, the clerk at a Nashville Exxon market, during a robbery back on May 2, 2017. Clark was with then 15-year-old Trinity Quinn, who was the subject of an Amber Alert issued from Rhea County. After interviewing Clark and Quinn, Nashville police said they believe they entered the Exxon to force Stevens to give up his car keys so they could leave the area. After the shooting, police said Clark and Quinn went to an SUV parked outside the store and attempted to open it but had the wrong keys. Clark then allegedly fired shots into the vehicle’s window and attempted to steal the vehicle, but the key did not work. Clark and Quinn then fled the area on foot. Clark will be arraigned soon on the indictment charges in Davidson County. Quinn is awaiting her next court date.
