3 dead in overnight shooting at Nashville apartment complex

(CNN) — A deadly shooting Sunday morning at an apartment complex in Nashville, Tennessee, left at least three people dead and four others wounded, police said.

Police responded to a shooting at Autumn Woods Apartments in Brentwood, a suburb of Nashville, shortly after 9 a.m. local time. One person was dead at the scene and the other two were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Brentwood Police Officer Katie George said.

“The investigation thus far has indicated that the victims were not the intended targets of the suspect,” Brentwood Police Chief Darren Whitlow said in a press conference. “A man in his late 20s opened fire on the victims.”

He said the gunman was detained after exchanging gunfire with police.

Autumn Woods Apartments is a complex of multistory homes built in the early 2000s and located less than a mile from Vanderbilt University. Police at the scene were on the property, but said they were still working to determine a motive.

Whitlow said there was “no confirmation” that there was a connection between the suspect and any of the victims.

Early reports were that four people were shot. Police later said there was another shooting victim, but declined to give further details.

Brentwood police chief Darren Whitlow said the suspect is a white male in his late 20s.

Police earlier tweeted that they were receiving multiple reports of multiple victims at the apartment complex.
