Two sheriff's deputies were shot at a courthouse in Tennessee on Monday when an inmate grabbed a gun during a hearing.
Coffee County District Attorney General Craig Northcott said the shooter, who was identified as inmate Michael Bell, has died.
Northcott said the inmate shot one of the deputies in the stomach and the other in the hand. Bell then fled the courthouse, entered an occupied home, went behind another house and shot himself.
Wade Bassett and Wendell Bowen were identified as the Coffee County deputies injured in the attack. One of the deputies was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the other was taken to a hospital in Chattanooga. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
The courthouse where the shooting took place is located in Manchester, which is about 65 miles southeast of Nashville.
