NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A shooting investigation is underway in Nashville following a deadly shootout that left an ATF Special Agent injured.

The exchange of gunfire took place around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon on Murfreesboro Pike, just down the street from Metro Nashville Police Headquarters.

Due to the nature of both the shootout and the investigation, the video has been blurred and cropped to not reveal certain details in the shooting.

The ATF Special Agent has been transported to Vanderbilt.
