Update from tennessean.com:
The gunman has been identified as a 26-year-old man. Police have not yet released his name.
The gunman shot and killed a woman in the parking lot of the church.
He then went inside the church and began firing “indiscriminately.”
A church usher confronted the shooter and was pistol-whipped, followed by a “significant struggle” in which the shooter shot himself in the left side of his chest.
After the struggle, the usher ran to his car and got his gun. He then went back inside and made sure the gunman didn’t do anything else before police arrived.
The gunman has been taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he remains under police guard.
