Update: Officer Sherman has been released from the hospital after having gunshot wounds to the left arm.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Police in Tennessee’s capital city say an officer was shot in the arm by a man who then killed himself as authorities responded to a false report that a woman had been wounded. Metro Nashville Police say officer Brian Sherman was left with injuries that were not life-threatening.
A police spokesman says Sherman and two other officers were called to a home on a report that someone was shooting and the caller’s mother was wounded. Officers arrived and someone shot at them. Officials said the 911 report was a setup to get police there. The shooter was identified as 22-year-old Salman Mohamed. Authorities say he killed himself at the scene.
