On Sunday afternoon, a shooting occurred in Nashville, Tennessee, leaving one person dead and five others injured. The police are still looking for the identified assailant.

The incident took place at a Nashville restaurant during Easter brunch. According to local police, the only fatality was 33-year-old Allen Beachem, who got into an aggressive argument with the attacker, Anton Rucker, 46, who moments later pulled out a gun and fired shots.

The restaurant was crowded, so other bystanders were injured, but according to the police, they had non-critical wounds that were not life-threatening.

Anton Rucker, moments after firing the shots, fled the Roaster restaurant in a Mercedes SUV. The police published a surveillance video on social media showing the shooter.
