Three people, including a suspect, have been hospitalized after a shooting at a Smile Direct Club warehouse in Antioch, Tennessee, early Tuesday morning.
The Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted that it was alerted shortly before 6 a.m.
The department said two employees were shot and taken to the hospital, and that an officer shot the suspected gunman. Their conditions are not yet known.
WKRN reported a witness saying that she saw a man start firing a weapon and shoot out the front doors of the building.
A Smile Direct Club employee told WKRN’s Josh Breslow that the suspect “just asked everybody ‘why are you running? why are you running?’ He just started opening fire, spraying it, the whole building.”
