3 dead after filming in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Police at the intersection of Willow St. and McCallie Avenue in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Three people are dead and 14 others injured after gunfire erupted overnight in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Two of the victims killed died of gunshot wounds and one was run over by a vehicle, police chief Celeste Murphy said in a news conference on Sunday. Of the 17 victims, 14 were shot and three were hit by vehicles as they tried to flee the scene, police officers said. Several people are in critical condition, she said.

CPD units responded to a report of a shooting at 2:42 a.m. at the 2100 block of McCallie Avenue at a nearby nightclub. The emergency services met several victims and provided assistance.

Murphy did not identify the victims. She said they included both male and female victims. 16 were adults and one was a juvenile. She expressed her condolences to the victims and their families.

The chief suggested there was more than one shooter, but said she could not confirm how many while the investigation was ongoing. Nobody is in custody. Authorities are reviewing evidence, including footage, Murphy said.

The type of weapons used in the shooting is still under investigation, Murphy said.

She did not release any information about what officials believe happened, but said it was an isolated incident with no ongoing threat to public safety. They’re trying to figure out what happened and what led to it, she said. Officials are seeking help from the community to find out.

“We cannot do this alone and we are asking for your help,” she said.

Murphy asked that anyone with information regarding this incident — no matter how small or insignificant you find that information — contact homicide detectives at (423) 643-5100. You can also use the Atlas One app. All of this can be anonymous, she said.
