Shooter wounds 2 before killing herself outside Tennessee auto parts plant

A woman shot and wounded two people Tuesday outside an auto parts plant in Tennessee before turning the gun on herself -- in what appeared to be a case of domestic violence, police said.

The shooting unfolded at the Ficosa plant in Cookeville. A wounded man and woman have been flown to hospitals for treatment, but their conditions were not immediately available.


"It would appear right now that the shooter took her own life," Cookeville Police Major Carl Sells said.

Two of the three were currently employed at the plant, Sells added. He also said two of them are in their early 20s.

The scene is secure and there is no ongoing threat to the public, Fox 17 News reported.

The plant, which develops automotive parts, opened in October of last year.

The incident in this city just 80 miles east of Nashville came one day after a shooting at a San Bernardino, Calif., elementary school that police said was related to domestic violence. A man walked into his estranged wife's classroom there and opened fire without saying a word, killing her and an 8-year-old student before shooting himself, investigators said. A 9-year-old was also wounded.
