Nashville, TN – A Nashville police officer was shot in an ambush attack while responding to a false report of a shooting on Tuesday evening.
The incident began at approximately 6:10 p.m. on May 4, when the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department (NMPD) received a 911 call from a man who claimed his brother had just shot his mother, WKRN reported.
The caller said the gunman was still firing inside their home on Sugarloaf Drive, police said.
At least three NMPD officers responded to the scene.
When they knocked on the front door, the gunman flung the door open and started shooting at them, NMPD spokesperson Don Aaron said during a press conference later that night.
NMPD Officer Brian Sherman was shot in his upper left arm during the ambush, WKRN reported.
The officers did not return fire and the gunman retreated into the home, Aaron said.
He has since been identified as 22-year-old Salman Mohamed, the Associated Press reported.
Aaron said police attempted to negotiate with Mohamed, but he ultimately walked out of the house with a rifle and fatally shot himself in the head, according to WKRN.
