One killed, 9 injured in Tennessee church shooting

Nashville-shooting

At least one person is dead and six others wounded after a shooting at a church outside of Nashville, Tenn., Sunday morning, in what authorities have deemed a "mass casualty situation". The suspect was transported to an area hospital where there was no immediate word on his condition. "The majority are older adults", Nashville Police Department wrote on Twitter.

It said one other victim was pistol-whipped and was hospitalized. There is no word on the extent of the victims' injuries.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry says a shooting at a church is "a bad tragedy for our city".

"Every time that church door open. that young woman was there", said Love, who is not a parishioner.

Few details have been released and the story is still developing.

Although injured, the usher went to the parking lot, took a gun out of his vehicle and re-entered the sanctuary.




According to Fox News, police said a suspect was taken into custody at the scene.

The church, which was conducting its weekly 10am service, is located in Pin Hook Road.

The Nashville Police Department said that one of the injured, a woman, died in the parking lot of the church.

The gunman then accidentally shot himself in the left side of his chest.

Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters that officers responded to the call at 11:15 a.m.

The surrounding area was closed off as police conduct an investigation.
