One dead after early Sunday shooting in Murfreesboro

A man is dead, and police are looking for the suspect, after responding to shooting in Murfreesboro early Sunday (9/8/2019) morning.

Paramedics from the Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services rushed a male victim to the ER at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Detectives are currently trying to determine his identity.

Officers were initially dispatched to the 2400 block of Halls Hill Pike around 1:11 a.m. Sunday to assist Rutherford County Sheriff’s deputies with a shots fired call and to help disperse a large crowd.

It was determined the shooting victim was located within the city limits, so Murfreesboro Police took over the crime scene.
