(La Vergne, Tenn.) One person is dead after apparently shooting a family member and then himself late Thursday night in La Vergne (03/31/2022). 

The gunman was found inside his house on Willowview Drive around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 31 after an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. The person who found the gunman called 911 and shortly after found a member of the gunman’s family on scene, suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to the hospital and was last listed as being in serious condition. The gunman was declared deceased when police arrived on scene. 

It is important to note that this is considered an ATTEMPTED murder-suicide at this time because the victim who was shot was still clinging to life upon the arrival of paramedics. That person is being treated at the hospital, but again - is in serious condition. The person who is the possible suspect in this case is the one who allegedly shot the family member before turning the gun on their self. That suspect is deceased.

No additional information can be released at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
