Another Theater Shooting: Active Shooter Reported In Nashville Cinema, Suspect Dead - Live Feed

Just two days after a jury agreed that Colorado theater shooter James Holmes could still face the death penalty for the tragic July 2012 mass shooting which killed 12 and injured 70, and a month after another shooter killed two and injured 8 before killing himself, moments ago WSMV reported that another active shooter situation had emerged in Nashville with the Nashville Fire Department confirming that shots were being fired at the Carmike 8 Cinemas on Bell Road at 1:55 p.m.

WSMV reports that police responded to a shots fired call about 1:15.

Dispatch confirmed three EMS units have been sent to the scene.


A spokesperson at Vanderbilt University Medical Center does not know if it will receive any patients.


Witnesses at a nearby business reported one person covered with blood.


The Ford Ice Center has been placed on lock down.


The Global Mall, which is next to the theater, has also been placed on lock down.


Last month a shooter opened fire a movie theater in Lafayette, LA.


The shooter killed two and injured eight before killing himself on July 23. Police said the 58-year-old gunman was armed with a handgun and acted alone.


In 2012, another man opened fire on a movie theater in Aurora, CO, killing 12 and injuring 70 more, in one of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history. The gunman, James Holmes, has been found guilty in the attack and is going through a sentencing trial to determine if he’ll receive the death penalty.
