MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One person has died following a shooting in Atoka, Tennessee in what police believe is an attempted murder-suicide.

The shooting happened on Brittany Lane around 8:15 p.m. on Monday night.

A 24-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene and the other victim, 50, was taken to Regional One in critical condition.

Atoka police believe the shooting stemmed from a domestic violence situation involving two family members.

At this time no charges have been filed. Atoka Police Chief Anthony Rudolph called the incident a domestic violence aggravated assault at this time and not a homicide.

Rudolph would not release the names of the victims or say what started the shooting or how many family members were in the house.

Chief Rudolph stressed that officers are there to provide some sort of resolution in domestic violence situations, but admits these kinds of calls can often be unpredictable. He referred to what happened Monday night as an “instantaneous” act, leaving a family torn and grieving and his officers wondering what more could have been done.

“We’re not immune from some of the things that go on in people’s homes and lives and so all we can do, as an agency, is prepare for those types of situations,” Rudolph said.
