Police: Active shooter reported dead at Nashville area theater

Here we go again.The gun grabbers will come out of the woodwork in force.

WSMV – by Chuck Morris

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Metro Police confirmed the shooter at the Carmike Hickory 8 Cinema in Antioch is dead.

The shots fired call came in to police at 1:13 p.m. Wednesday, and police responded within two minutes.  

The Nashville Fire Department confirmed that shots were being fired at the movie theater on Bell Road just before 2 p.m.

Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said the suspect entered the theater armed with a gun and a hatchet. Nashville Fire Department spokesman Brian Haas later said the gunman also had pepper spray.

Two South Precinct officers working a nearby crash responded to the shots fired call. One of the officers entered the theater showing Mad Max: Fury Road and encountered the gunman.

Police said the gunman raised his weapon and pulled the trigger. The officer returned fire and backed away.

Aaron said the gunman had sprayed pepper spray throughout the theater. Gas masks were brought to officers because the theater was thick with pepper spray.

Police said the gunman was wearing a surgical mask, possibly to stop the effects of the pepper spray.

A Metro SWAT Team had set up at the back door of the theater. When the gunman came out of that door, officers engaged and fatally wounded him.

“We believe the imminent threat has ended,” Aaron said.

The gunman has been tentatively identified as a 51-year-old local white male. His identity has not been confirmed.

Police said the gunman was the only person shot.

Aaron said the gunman had two backpacks on him at the time of the shooting. Police said they are “not comfortable” with those backpacks and they will be detonated.

Haas said two women were injured from exposure to pepper spray. A man suffered superficial injuries to his shoulder, possibly from the hatchet.

Aaron said the actions of the first two responding officers likely saved many lives.

Officials at Vanderbilt University Medical Center confirmed no victims would be transported to the hospital.

Witnesses at a nearby business reported one person covered with blood.

Sean Oliver, a witness, saw the SWAT Team at the back of the theater.
“You see officers going to the back. That’s when you see them all hiding in trees,” Oliver said. “When they started shooting, you see the dust flying up.”

The Ford Ice Center and The Global Mall, which are located near the theater, were placed on lock down during the active shooter investigation. Ford Ice Center will remain closed for the rest of the day.

Ezell-Harding, a school located on Bell Road, was also on lock down.

Last month a shooter opened fire a movie theater in Lafayette, LA. The shooter killed two and injured eight before killing himself on July 23. Police said the 58-year-old gunman was armed with a handgun and acted alone.

In 2012, another man opened fire on a movie theater in Aurora, CO, killing 12 and injuring 70 more, in one of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history. The gunman, James Holmes, has been found guilty in the attack and is going through a sentencing trial to determine if he’ll receive the death penalty.

  1. Asinine reprobates! They can’t come up with something different?! This would be comical if it wasn’t so sinister….we’re in la la land!

  2. This is starting to get funny…Manufacturing reality at locations where people can view manufactured reality. I guess it makes sense in a perverted sort of way.

    1. I’m thinking they start with theaters and move on to malls and grocery stores and such. I think it is to steer the American psyche into fear of going out for fear of being shot. If people are afraid to go out, businesses go broke, leading to a faster crash of the economy. If there are no places to shop at, then the internet is the last resort, allowing them control of everything. If we rise up, simply shut down the internet to get control back. Might sound a little far fetched but look at what is happening with on line shopping today.

      1. They did do a couple Westgate malls already here in the States and the one in Africa. Coincidentally Frank Lowy, Silversteins partner in WTC lease, is owner of Westgate. ..expect more though for TSA and DHS expansion. Bigger budget to bleed us further in all angles. Also a convenient way to implement lockdown and increased militarization.

    2. Sharon,
      If you were going to run a false flag for a mass shooting, you are going to have to be around a whole lot of people. Theaters are dark and bam bam bam bam bam, gunshots.
      Do you think people in that herd are going to try to get a good look at the person popping off the rounds? Or are they going to stampede one another getting out of that dark theater?
      Now just one person has to stand up and say in a loud clear voice that all of them can hear, “I saw it and this is what happened.” Thereafter, come to think of it, everyone in the DARK theater remembers it just like the guy who proclaimed it with a loud voice.
      I believe they call it psychology. I watched a fella do it on Brain Games. It is a simple trick and amazingly effective.
      Of course, James Holmes is being sentenced for the first false flag that happened three yeeaarrs ago, which the propagandists are coupling with these last two productions in declaring an epidemic of theater shootings, as the NRA joins with the good ol’ boy conservative neo-con republicans/national socialists to join with the soviet socialists to come after our guns.
      Any ways, that is the way I see it.

      1. Henry, thanks for the input. That makes a lot of sense. I couldn’t figure out why movie theaters especially seemed to be the setting. One thing that crossed my mind was, what movies were playing during these events? Were they themes that fit the agenda like the first one with Batman? Hmmm. Anyway, thanks again.

        1. I don’t know if the theme of the movie had anything to do with it, but the people in the theater watching the movie were definitely in a slight hypnosis when whatever happened happened.

          1. Henry, this is from the article in the link (I was trying to find out what type of gun was used – no mention)

            “Aaron said the actions of the first two responding officers likely saved many lives. He said eight people were in the theater at the time.”

            Eight crisis actors?

          1. “… armed with a hatchet and airsoft pistol that looked like a real gun…”

            “Officers responded to the Carmike Hickory 8 theater on Bell Road within minutes of receiving calls shots were fired around 1:13 p.m…”

            So it LOOKED like a real gun.

            What did he do, bring firecrackers to make it SOUND like a real gun?

          2. LOL
            Yes, a pellet gun, a pink hatchet, and
            “Police say a ‘hoax device’ was found in the gunman’s backpack and posed no threat to the community.”

  3. “… said the suspect entered the theater armed with a gun and a hatchet.”

    So they said.

    Kinda hard to swing a hatchet and fire a gun at the same time.

    “…said the gunman also had pepper spray.”

    Terrific idea!

    It’s always much easier to shoot (or hack) people when the air is full of pepper spray, this notwithstanding… “…Police said the gunman was wearing a surgical mask, possibly to stop the effects of the pepper spray.” Sorry, that burns the sh#t out of your eyes as well, so…???

    “One of the officers entered the theater showing Mad Max: Fury Road and encountered the gunman.

    Police said the gunman raised his weapon and pulled the trigger. The officer returned fire and backed away.”

    Two shots, two misses (allegedly).

    “A man suffered superficial injuries to his shoulder, possibly from the hatchet.”

    Seriously?

    You get whacked with a hatchet, it’ll be anything but “superficial”.

    “Police said the gunman was the only person shot.”

    Why does this come as no surprise.

    I gotta take my bullsh#t meter in for repair. I think this one fried a circuit board or somethin’.

    1. And only 8 people? Maybe it was like the last episode and they said 100 people attending but only 25 tickets sold? 1:4 ratio so probably only 2 present at this one. If anyone was even needed at all to sell this tripe. BS is right.

      1. And this is ambiguous at best…

        “One of the officers entered the theater showing Mad Max: Fury Road and encountered the gunman.”

        Was the film (or trailers) actually PLAYING at the time, or was it between shows? Kinda hard to pick out a ‘gunman’ in a dark theater.

        Also, absolutely no mention whether it was even a rifle or handgun the victim used. Obviously NOT an ASSAULT rifle, or it would have been the screaming headline.

  4. “…Police said the gunman was wearing a surgical mask, possibly to stop the effects of the pepper spray.” Sorry, that burns the sh#t out of your eyes as well, so…???

    Some surgical masks have clear plastic eye-protection shields built on to them. Neither part of the mask will protect the wearer from the effects of pepper spray. It’s more likely it was worn to “mask” his identity.

  5. An observation of mine, the phrase ” Active Shooter “. Now, isn’t a ” shooter ” active ? No brainer. Thus, I see this ” Active Shooter ” moniker as a psychological, albeit inherently impotent for those who can see, attempt to manipulate via over-emphasis. Smacks of desperation to me. Of course, all this overly covered bullshit on MSM is contrived. Especially when the facts, or the lack / contradiction thereof, look like a colander. Think about it: What’s an ” Inactive Shooter ” ? A registered gun owner ? . . .

    1. I’d prefer a full deep sea diving suit with air tanks (and spares) myself, Dawn. It’s been getting progressively deeper these last few months.

      I really hate bullsh#t.

        1. Concur.

          I’d be in bad shape if I hadn’t moved when I did. It’s been the most positive thing I’ve done since finding FTT, and I couldn’t have made a better choice. 🙂

          1. Couldn’t. Agree. More. Sane people with sane commentary moderated and addressed by patriots that aren’t infiltrated with commies and run by feds. I believe this IS the only one out there with those credentials.

          2. LOL… I meant a better choice as far as where I moved to, Martist. As for FTT, that goes without sayin’! 😉

  6. “Last month a shooter opened fire a movie theater in Lafayette, LA. The shooter killed two and injured eight before killing himself on July 23. Police said the 58-year-old gunman was armed with a handgun and acted alone.

    In 2012, another man opened fire on a movie theater in Aurora, CO, killing 12 and injuring 70 more, in one of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history. The gunman, James Holmes, has been found guilty in the attack and is going through a sentencing trial to determine if he’ll receive the death penalty.”

    YES YES!! Keep unnecessarily repeating the false flag horror stories at the end of each article! We must remind everyone that theaters are not safe until we have a NY Senator pass a law to put metal detectors in theaters and malls. Then these shootings will magically stop, just like after installing those new credit card readers after the credit card breaches in Target, Home Depot, etc. and just like the Ebola vaccines that were supposedly created after the Ebola scare.

    1. My new Wells Fargo ( have very little left there ) credit card with the new RFID chip recently arrived, and promptly took a long bath in my microwave oven. It’s dead.

    2. Don Aaron was also the official spokesman for the synagogue shooting in April btw. Aaron surname is primarily joo. Just sayin…ALWAYS the same characters in this crap.

  7. “In a press conference Wednesday night, authorities said it appeared Montano had ‘significant psychiatric or psychological issues.’ ”
    Metro police Spokesman Don Aaron said he had been committed four times in the past in Rutherford County, twice in 2004 and twice in 2007. The exact nature of his issues weren’t immediately known.
    Metro police also said Montano was reported missing two days ago on Aug. 3 by his mother. He has a criminal history in the county that includes charges of assault and resisting arrest in 2004.”

    1. Committed 4 times huh? That’s plenty enough time for the psych-scramblers to do a number on his brain. Guy probably can’t even remember his own name at this point.

  8. I was working at the theater today and when this happened two of my managers (for the record) came up to inform us of this incident and to be on the lookout for anything and to try not to scare customers about it.

    (Off the record), they told us afterwards that these theater shootings are so stupid and getting ridiculous and that the media is just getting way out of hand with it all and trying to cause more problems for everyone. After I mention about if they heard of the proposal about the NY Senator wanting to have metal detectors and wands setup in movie theaters, one of the managers said he saw that article and laughed and said, “That’s would just be insane. Why would someone propose something like that?”. I told him, “Yeah. Imagine when Star Wars comes out during Christmas and there’s a line out the door and we have to tell everyone, ‘Please be sure you show up 2 hours before your movie starts so we can go through the screening process’.” The two managers who I was talking to just rolled their eyes and said, “OMG…that would be just a nightmare.”

    I then sarcastically told them, “Why don’t we just go outside our homes every day and just raise our hands up and have someone screen us before we leave since that is what they (the elite) really want”.

    They all just laughed and agreed how insane it’s getting.

    But of course that is what the elite want. More police state measures. Problem, reaction, solution, until you are rounded up and thrown in the basement and putting a bullet in your head like the Chekists did when they didn’t need you anymore.

  9. Damn, I think I’m going to have to get a full body wet suit, the s*it just spilled over my hip boots. A guy with mace, a hatchet, and a gun was shot dead by police today. These “candyass” elites’ think they can buy everything they need, until the walls start crumbling down. Then they hire the their “thugs” with badges! They stand there like the boy with his thumb in the dike. “Well, they’re not mad enough just yet. Hey buddy, I’m running out of ideas to enrage them, you got anything? Damn, we’ve done about every dastardly thing I can think of, I’m fresh out.”

  10. Who comes into a theater with a pellet gun and a hatchet? Who the hell would even let them in? Is it Halloween already?

    Funny how they pick the movie Mad Max about a person going insane in a post-apocalyptic world. (Actually Mel Gibson’s version of Mad Max was more insane than Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy was pathetic)

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the movie was not playing and the lights were on and if there were people in there, they would be waiting for the movie to start. Otherwise, how could anyone identify anyone when it’s dark.

    Hell, I work at a movie theater for cryin’ out loud. Unless you’ve been in the movie theater for a few minutes so that your eyes adjust to the darkness, you’re not going to know who is who. Especially with pepper spray, if you even believe that.

    By the way, if he did spray enough pepper spray in the theater and people saw him do it, they would either be yelling at him to stop spraying that shit or would be running out of the theater in agonizing pain.

    Also, if this guy had a gun, it would have taken police 10 minutes to show up. Another 2-3 minutes to find the theater. Another 3-4 minutes to arrange everyone to find and surround the back exit doors and probably another 3 minutes to adjust their eyes to darkness (if the movie was playing) and identifying the person.

    Total time: About 20 minutes.

    Point being that if this guy was out to kill someone, he would have shot up most or everyone in there in seconds and way before the police would have arrived and all it would have taken was one shot before a person would have stood up and ran for the exit doors along with 200 other people following them or crawling on the floor screaming, Bloody Mary!

    So this whole staged event is exactly just that.

    1. Yeah, and since you work in a theater, this fabricated scenario must seem really off-the-charts bizarre to you!

      I have a feeling it’s going to be more difficult for me to sneak in my own bottled water and home-made, non-GMO popcorn into the movies in the future.

      1. Yea, I’m sure the elite would love to have conveyor belts to send your bottled water and popcorn that are hidden in your purse through the X-ray machines. I’m quitting on the spot if I ever see those machines being implemented at my workplace.

        1. I hope it never comes to any of that, NC. I’d like to think it would never happen, because they would lose a lot of business, but conveyor belts and x-ray scanners don’t seem to be hurting the airline business too much.
