Nashville theater shooting suspect dead inside theater, police say

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a suspect is dead after officers responded to reports of shots fired at a movie theater southeast of Nashville, Tennessee.

Metro Nashville police said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon that there was an active shooter situation at the Carmike Hickory 8 theater, but that the suspect was dead.

Nashville Fire Department spokesman Brian Haas said previously that police were responding to the theater in Antioch, a suburb southeast of Nashville.

No other details were immediately available.

The latest shooting comes about two weeks after a gunman opened fire inside a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana, during a screening of the film “Trainwreck.” Police said John Russell Houser killed two people and wounded nine others before fatally shooting himself.
