Don't have the link. Junk phone. Another nut.

Tennessee movie theater shooting suspect killed by police

(CNN)A man wielding a gun, a hatchet and pepper spray was killed inside a Tennessee movie theater on Wednesday after police responding to reports of an active shooter traded gunshots with the suspect, Nashville police said.

Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters that one moviegoer was cut on a shoulder by a hatchet before police officers killed the 51-year-old suspect as he tried to go out the back door.

The wounded man had a superficial injury to his arm, fire department spokesman Brian Haas said.

No one has been transported to a hospital, Haas said, but three people -- including the man who suffered the cut from the hatchet -- suffered irritation from pepper spray apparently used by the suspect, who was wearing a surgical mask.

The suspect also had two backpacks with him, Aaron said. The bomb squad is going to destroy the bags, he said.

Police were called to the Carmike Hickory 8 movie theater complex in the Nashville suburb of Antioch at 1:15 p.m. CT. Two officers were already at the mall working a car accident when people came running toward them. The officers were inside the complex withing two minutes, Aaron said.

One officer entered the theater and exchanged fire with the gunman before backing away. The SWAT team arrived and had to don gas masks due to the heavy chemical spray in the theater, Aaron said. The man tried to flee out the back door.

A woman who worked at a Sprint store near the scene told CNN's Brooke Baldwin that about three hours earlier, a man with two backpacks tried to enter her store through their back door.

Antioch is a suburb of Nashville, about 15 miles southeast of the city.

Maybe it's time for America to ban movie theatres? :sadno:

Not another movie psycho

Just another day in America.

Sadly psycho usually means significant mental illness. This is far to common to be a mentally ill induced action so much as it seems to be common place and nearly acceptable

Hell...what's the worst that can happen to these guys? Casual lock up under heavy watch and well protected for years while sentencing occurs then 50/50 you get a cushy place with lots of drugs and 24 hour watch, or a less cushy place with 24 watch and lots of drugs.

Gun violence and violence of this nature in the US is just too common for it to be out of the ordinary

Hell, to be completely honest. I am shocked and almost appalled when a day goes by where some HASN'T died in the US from mass gun violence or gun related stupidity
