Active Shooter Reported at Tennessee Movie Theater

It's being reported that a gunman has attacked a movie theater in suburban Antioch, Tennessee.  But in less than an hour after the incident, he has been confirmed dead - the suspect was killed by police.  No other major injuries have been reported.

The shooting took place at the Carmike Hickory 8 theaters at 901 Bell Road - it was reported at 1:13 p.m. CT.  40 minutes later, the police scanner traffic indicated the incident still was an active situation.  But a tweet from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department announced the shooter's death at 2:07 p.m.

A SWAT team is currently on the scene. Extra police patrols have also been assigned at the Carmike Bellevue 8 movie theater, less than 20 miles away.

The suspect had two backpacks with him and one of them contained a hoax device to resemble a bomb.
