At least 4 killed, including gunman, in Nashville school shooting: reports

At least four people were killed, including the gunman, in a shooting at a Nashville, Tennessee school on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

The incident occurred at the entrance of a school in the city's West End neighborhood, police said. Local law enforcement were dispatched to the scene just after noon, and reports of shots fired were confirmed at 12:15 p.m.

At least three people were killed, including the gunman, according to The Tennessean. Two of the victims were students at the school, and the third was an employee. A fourth victim, an adult, was found dead in a nearby residence, according to the report.

Police identified the gunman as 24-year-old Travis Reinking. He was found dead at the scene from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

No other details have been released about the victims. Police have not said what may have motivated the shooting.

The school lockdown was lifted shortly after 1 p.m. and classes resumed.

The shooting comes less than one week after a gunman killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida. It is the latest in a series of deadly school shootings across the country in recent weeks.

The tragedy has left the Nashville community shaken, and city leaders have called for increased safety measures in schools.

“Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims of this senseless act of violence,” Nashville Mayor David Briley said in a statement. “We will do everything we can to ensure that our schools are safe.”
