MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV) – Middle Tennessee State University officials, confirmed the shooting of two people Wednesday night.
Police confirmed the death of one person in the shooting at MTSU Wednesday evening during the Riverdale High School graduation at Murphy Center. They also said another was injured in the incident and is now in critical condition.
Investigators said the two people were shot near the tennis courts. It is unknown at this time whether either victim was a student.
“Tonight’s shooting is a tragedy for our community: we mourn with the family who lost a loved one and the family of the person injured,” said Police officials.
Rutherford County Schools District Public Information Officer James Evans said Riverdale High School would be closed tomorrow as a safety measure.
I have not stepped in a school of any type since I began carrying concealed about 2 decades ago. I have not even visited my old Alma Mater in Nasville because according to the law, I am a “risk” and a “threat” to the poor kids inside.
In the meantime, the criminal element has no problems breaking the law and making people dead and wounded inside any campus in the nation.
