A Metro Nashville Police officer was shot in the arm while responding to a reported active shooter at a home in South Nashville. But police say it was a “setup” and when officers arrived, the Muslim suspect opened fire on officers. Fortunately, the officer wasn’t seriously injured and even better, the Muslim ended up shooting himself in the head.
NewsChannel5 On the 911 call, you can hear Salman Mohammed saying that he’s scared that shots are continuing to be fired. Hurry, hurry, please get here in a hurry. It was all a ruse to get the police officers to this scene.
Officers attempted negotiations with him, but they failed. Mohamed died when he shot himself in the driveway of the home. No officers fired their weapons during the incident.
The family of Mohamed released a statement through attorney Jamie Hollin on Wednesday:
“Our son Salman has been suffering and struggling with mental health issues. We, as family, have been searching for answers. He was an overachieving, gifted student when he was feeling well. We are devastated by the loss of our son and our lives are forever changed.
