Three dead in shooting, car crashes outside Chattanooga bar


A chaotic scene outside a Chattanooga, Tenn., bar early Sunday morning left two people shot and killed and another dead after being hit by a car while trying to flee, according to police.

Police responded to the scene, near Mary’s Bar and Grill downtown, around 2:45 a.m. and found 14 people who had been shot and three others who had been struck by cars driving away, Chattanooga Police Chief Murphy said during a press conference.

One victim was a juvenile, police said, and the other 16 were adults. Several are in critical condition, according to officials.

“This is once again a situation in which we find that we need help from the community to help us out with this, because we cannot do this by ourselves,” Murphy said. “This is clearly a tragic event for the families involved and the victims.”

No arrests have been made but Murphy said there was no ongoing threat to the public. Officials believe there were multiple shooters.

The shooting comes just a week after another in Chattanooga that left six people injured last Saturday.
