One Killed, 7 Injured in Tennessee Church Shooting

One person was killed and seven wounded when a masked gunman opened fire in a church just after the service ended Sunday in the southern U.S. state of Tennessee.

The shooter, described by police as a 26-year-old suspect from Rutherford County, was also shot but it is not clear if the shooting was accidental or intentional.

Don Aaron, spokesman for the Metro Nashville Police Department, said the gunman fatally shot a woman in the parking lot of the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ before entering the sanctuary and began "indiscriminately" shooting.
