Church Shooting

Shooting In Knoxville Tennessee Church – Seven Hospitalized

A shooting in a Church during Sunday Services occurred this morning.

None of the church-goers were killed, but seven people were sent to the hospital after an armed attacker opened fire during a church service.

The church was the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. The weapon was a shotgun. Several of the injuries were head wounds, but the status of the injured has not been released at this point.

The gunman was tackled before he could get off any more shots, but had more ammunition on him should he have the opportunity to re-load.

There were about 200 people in the church at the time of the shooting watching a youth performance being put on by 25 children.
