NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee authorities say one person is dead and an officer has been injured following a shooting at an apartment complex in Nashville.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials say officers responded to a call of shots fired at approximately 10:30 p.m. Friday at an apartment complex at 2400 Buena Vista Pike. They say arriving officers observed a person who matched the description of the suspect running into an apartment. Officers approached the apartment door to make contact.
