A gunman opened fire at a Nashville coffee shop, leaving at least one person dead and four others injured, during Easter brunch, Nashville police said. 

“Detectives are working to determine the motive for this gunman opening fire during Sunday brunch at Roasted on Garfield St.,” Metro Nashville Police posted on X, formerly Twitter. Police released images of the suspected shooter and his car.

Police said the shooting happened around 3 p.m., when a man opened fire inside the coffee shop, striking five people, and killing one man.

Shortly after arriving at the scene, police released surveillance photos of the alleged gunman.
