This sounds horrible. Reports are that one is dead, and many injured after a gunman opened fire at a church in Nashville, Tennessee.

More from the Tennesseean:

At least one person has been killed and seven others have been injured at a church shooting in Antioch.

The shooter was wounded and is being treated at the hospital, according to Metro Nashville Police.

Police say the gunman opened fire at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, killing a woman and injuring six others. Another person was pistol whipped and has been taken to the hospital.

Around noon, Joseph Pleasant, a spokesman for the Nashville Fire Department, confirmed at least six to eight people have been injured and were being transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center.

In a tweet from the Nashville Fire Department account, officials said the shooter was among eight people being treated for injuries. One victim was pistol whipped, according to police.

I’ll update as necessary….


This woman lives next to the church and describes what it was like to have victims come to her door:
