Police: 3 wounded in Tennessee workplace shooting; gunman dead
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say a gunman shot and wounded three people at a Tennessee business and was later fatally shot by police.
Police say the shooting happened early Tuesday at a Smile Direct Club manufacturing facility in Nashville.
Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron told news outlets the suspect had left before officers arrived, but they spotted him at a nearby intersection carrying a semi-automatic pistol.
Aaron said the suspect was fatally shot after refusing orders to drop his weapon and then directing it at officers.
Police said the suspect is a 22-year-old man who started working at the business in June.
His motive for opening fire during a shift change was under investigation.
