    1 dead, 4 injured after shots fired at hotel, highway in Tennessee

    1 dead, 4 injured after shots fired at hotel, highway in Tennessee

    Published July 07, 2016 FoxNews.com

    One person was killed and four others wounded -- including a police officer -- when a man fired shots at a Days Inn and several cars on a highway in Bristol, Tenn. early Thursday, officials said.

    The accused shooter, who has not been identified, was also wounded and is in custody at Bristol Regional Medical Center, WJHL reported. No motive has been identified yet.


    Jennifer Rooney, a 44-year-old mother who delivered the local newspaper, was driving to pick up papers for the morning delivery when she was shot and killed, according to Bristol Herald-Courier publisher Jim Maxwell.


    Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine said the suspect was armed with at least two weapons and shot at responding officers, who returned fire, wounding him.


    Bristol police said in a statement that the shootings happened near the Virginia border.


    Media reported that TBI agents were processing four separate crime scenes.


    DeVine said police are working "as aggressively, as quickly, and as carefully as possibly" to gather evidence and determine what happened.


    Maxwell said the incident was a "senseless act of violence."


    "Residents of our community woke up to what was expected to be a typical July warm and humid morning, except today they were greeted with news of this extremely troubling event," Maxwell wrote. "It's like the crazy stuff you read about or see on television from other places suddenly and unexpectedly materialized here in our backyard. Things like this just don't happen here."


    The paper reported that Rooney had worked there for nearly a year.


    Rooney's family declined to comment.

    Tenn. Shooting Suspect Possibly Motivated by Recent Incidents Involving Black People and Police, Officials Say

    The man believed to be responsible for a series of shootings in Bristol, Tennessee, on Thursday may have been motivated by "recent incidents involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country," according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI).

    The suspect, identified as 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott, allegedly fired shots through the window of a Days Inn hotel on Volunteer Parkway, striking a clerk, before he appeared to have "indiscriminately fired at several vehicles driving" on the highway, the TBI said in a statement.


    Scott then fired at three responding officers from the Bristol Police Department, who then "returned fire, striking Scott," the TBI said. Scott was was taken to Bristol Regional Medical Center, where he was listed in serious but stable condition as of Friday morning.


    The shooting left one civilian dead, two civilians injured and one police officer injured, according to the TBI.


    "Preliminarily, the investigation reveals Scott may have targeted individuals and officers after being troubled by recent incidents involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country," the TBI said. "Late this morning, investigators had their first opportunity to speak with Scott, and the work to develop a thorough understanding of his motivation for this incident remains central to the ongoing investigative work."


    As the investigation continues, the TBI said it would submit findings to the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.


    "Our thoughts and prayers remain with the injured and their families," it added.


    Scott has not yet been charged, according to the Associated Press.

    Lakeem Keon Scott: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    Lakeem Keon Scott. (Facebook)

    A man who was “troubled by recent incidents involving African-Americans and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country” has been accused of shooting five people in Tennessee, killing a woman and wounding three others, including a police officer.

    Lakeem Keon Scott, 37, was shot by police after opening fire about 2:20 a.m. Thursday on Volunteer Highway in Bristol, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a press release. Scott was seriously wounded, but was in stable condition Friday afternoon, police said.


    The victim killed in the shooting was identified as Jennifer Rooney. The other victims are expected to survive.


    The shootings came eight hours before a gunman opened fire during a rally against police brutality in Dallas, killing five officers and wounding seven officers and two civilians. The shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson, died after a police robot detonated a bomb near him during a standoff.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said they first spoke to Scott on Friday.

    “The work to develop a thorough understanding of his motivation for this incident remains central to the ongoing investigative work,” the TBI said.


    The TBI told WJHL-TV they haven’t determined yet if Scott was only targeting white people and police officers.


    “We aren’t prepared to go that far,” the TBI told the news station, adding they are “still attempting to firm up the motive.”


    The FBI, ATF, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office and the Bristol Police Department are assisting in the investigation. The results of the investigation will be turned over to the district attorney.


    “The TBI would like to reiterate there is currently no public safety threat to the Bristol community,” the agency said in a press release. “The ongoing investigation indicates the alleged gunman acted alone.

    Anyone with specific information about the incident or the individual believed to be responsible may contact the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.”

    Jennifer Rooney, a 44-year-old wife and mother of two, was delivering papers for the Bristol Herald-Courier when she was shot and killed in her car, the newspaper reports.

    “Everything was good about Jennifer,” David Rooney, her husband, told the Herald-Courier. “She was a wonderful mother and wonderful wife. She was a big-hearted person who gave 110 percent to everyone — especially the children.

    Whether it was school or the martial arts they are involved in — she was always there for them.”


    Her son is 12 and her daughter is 10.


    The other victims include Bristol Police Officer Matthew Cousins, who sustained a superficial leg wound and was treated and released from the hospital, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.


    Deborah Watts, the Days Inn clerk shot when Scott fired through the motel’s window, is in serious, but stable, condition, police said.


    David Whitman Davis, the fourth victim, received minor injuries.



    5. The Gunman in Dallas Told Police Negotiators He Was ‘Upset With White People’

    Several hours after police said Scott went on a rampage in Tennessee, a gunman opened fire at a Black Lives Matter march in Dallas, Texas.
    The shooter, Micah Xavier Johnson, told police negotiators he was angry about two recent police killings of black people, in Minnesota and Louisiana, and was upset with white people, officials said. He said he was targeting white police officers, authorities said.

    Alton Sterling was fatally shot by two officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Tuesday. A day later, Philando Castile was killed by police during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Parts of both shootings were caught on videos that spread quickly across social media.

    Investigations into both those shootings are ongoing and no officers have been charged.
