This could have been much worse.
A Metro Nashville Police officer was injured 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 suspect opened fire on officers.
Police and fire crews were called to the 7200 block of Sugarloaf Drive for a report from a man claiming his brother had shot his mother and that the gunfire was continuing.
Three officers knocked on the door, but when they began to enter the home, the caller opened fire, injuring Officer Brian Sherman, according to MNPD Spokesman Don Aaron.
Officers retreated from the home. The gunman, 22-year-old Salman Mohamed, followed them outside. Aaron says 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, according to Aaron.
BLM’s got another martyr.
The family living at that home appears to be Somali. Mohamed’s family is, as usual, blaming mental illness.
Nashville has a sizable Somali migrant community due to refugee resettlement and has been the scene of Islamic terror attacks before. As of 2007, there were around 5,000 Somalis living in Nashville. There are likely to be more now.
In 2015, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, a “Palestinian-Jordanian” migrant, carried out terrorist attacks against two military targets, killing 4 marines and a sailor. Despite his known support for Islamic terrorism, his family and the media tried to blame mental illness.
Fortunately, Salman Mohamed failed to actually kill any Americans. But the enemy only has to get lucky once.
