Early Sunday morning in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a shooting took place, leaving three people injured, according to the Chattanooga Police Department. The CPD is currently investigating the circumstances leading up to the incident.

An Unexpected Call

At around 3 A.M., officers were dispatched to a residence in the Washington Hills area following a call from a woman who claimed her son had arrived home with gunshot wounds. Initially, first responders were dispatched to the address relayed by the distressed woman, but this action was quickly cancelled as the woman decided to personally transport her son to the hospital.

Further Developments

Around ten minutes following the initial distress call, three individuals, all with gunshot wounds, presented themselves at two separate, undisclosed hospitals. All victims had personally transported themselves. The individuals have been identified as a 19-year-old male, a 22-year-old male, and a 22-year-old female.

The Investigation Process

Given the severity of the incident, the Chattanooga Police Department’s Homicide Unit has been assigned to probe deeper into the matter.
