MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Both of the National Guard members who were wounded in a shooting yesterday at an armory near Memphis, Tenn., have been released from a hospital.
The Tennessee National Guard says they were shot while disarming the gunman -- a fellow Guardsman. The police chief in Millington says one man was shot in the foot, and the other in the leg.
A law enforcement official says the shooter, a sergeant first class, had been disciplined before opening fire with a handgun at the armory. Both he and the two men who were wounded are identified as recruiters.
The suspect is in custody, pending the filing of charges. His name hasn't been released.
