Antioch, Tennessee, shooting: 2 employees shot at SmileDirectClub, and police say they shot gunman


The shooting was reported shortly before 6 a.m. at the facility in Antioch, a neighborhood of southeastern Nashville, the Metro Nashville Police Department said.

Responding officers found two employees had been shot, and both were taken to a hospital, police said.

The suspected gunman was shot by police, and the suspect also was taken to a hospital, police said.

No names or conditions were immediately released. Police also have not commented about a motive.

SmileDirectClub, a Nashville-based company that makes clear plastic teeth aligners, said “the incident was contained quickly by security personnel on site.”
“The safety of our team members is a top priority for our company and we maintain strict security protocols and a no weapons policy at all of our facilities,” the company said Tuesday in a Twitter statement.

SmileDirectClub is known primarily for working with dentists and orthodontists to sell clear aligners online as an alternative to traditional braces.

The Antioch neighborhood is about a 12-mile drive southeast of downtown Nashville.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
