The shooting happened inside the mall in a hallway near the Auntie Anne's pretzel shop across from Old Navy around 2:23 p.m. The victim was taken to Skyline Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.
According to police officials, a dispute at the mall between two men ended in gunfire. The suspected shooter ran from the mall to a ticketing booth outside. He placed his gun on the booth counter and told the people inside to call 911.
Coincidentally, the person inside the booth was a retired California police officer. He took the gun and told the suspect to lie down on the ground until police arrived.
There was no additional imminent threat known. Both he and the victim are 22 years old and from Nashville.
Officials said it appeared to have been an ongoing dispute that prompted the shooting. The identities of the victim and suspect have not yet been released.
Customers inside the mall were told to stay put and away from the entrances.
They said the mall was being swept by officers as a precaution. Police evacuated Bass Pro, Johnny Rockets, the food court and other areas.
The Gaylord Opryland Hotel, was placed on lockdown when the shooting occurred, but it has since been lifted. Yet, the entire mall was closed for the rest of the day.
