A man was killed and five others were hurt in a shooting at a restaurant in Nashville on Easter Sunday

A man was shot and killed, and five others were injured during a shooting at a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, on Easter Sunday, as reported by the police.

A man was shot and killed, and five others were injured during a shooting at a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, on Easter Sunday, according to police.

The shooting began around 3 p.m. in Nashville’s Salemtown area shortly after a man arrived at the restaurant with a woman, as per the police.

A man and the suspect got into an argument that quickly escalated, according to Metropolitan Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron.

The man who died was identified as Allen Beachem, 33. The conditions of the other victims were not immediately disclosed by the police.

Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell expressed his sympathy for the victims of the shooting, which disrupted Easter festivities in the neighborhood.

The police used security footage from the restaurant to identify a 46-year-old suspect and the car used to flee the scene. The suspect was still being sought by the police on Monday.

The authorities clarified that the gunman was the only one seen with a gun and that the incident was not a shootout, but rather a result of a single person deciding to open fire during an altercation.

There was chaos inside the restaurant as customers tried to escape, according to Police Commander Anthony McClain.

Some customers attempted to resist the gunman, leading to widespread panic and confusion.

Investigators were speaking with the victims at local hospitals to piece together the details of the incident, according to Aaron.

The authorities indicated that the altercation may have started over a seemingly minor issue of personal space invasion.
