Multiple People Shot in Downtown Chattanooga
DEVELOPING: At least six people were shot in crime-ridden downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee after warring factions opened fire on each other.
Police say it happened in the vicinity of Buffalo Wild Wings near the city’s famed Tennessee Aquarium.
Multiple gunshot victims were taken to a hospital for treatment, police Sgt. Jeremy Eames told CNN. Four are expected to survive while two have life-threatening injuries, he said. Most of those shot were teenagers or in their early 20s, he added.
“We had large groups of juveniles walking around the downtown area this date and we believe it’s from within that group that the shooting took place,” he said. Police said they’ve detained at least one person in relation to the gunfire.
