Authorities search for suspected gunman after one killed, several injured in Nashville


(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Police in Nashville, Tennessee, are searching for a gunman who they say opened fire during an Easter brunch.

Anton Rucker, 46, is wanted for killing 33-year-old Allen Beachem and injuring five others “non-critically” in Sunday afternoon’s shooting, authorities said.

The shooting stemmed from an altercation between the two men while brunch was being served at Roasted in Nashville, according to Don Aaron, the public relations director for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

As the altercation escalated, Rucker allegedly pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots, Aaron said.

Authorities have no information that the two men knew each other.

A total of eight people were transported from the scene, including the man who died, police said. One of the injured suffered a graze wound, though it was not clear if the person had been shot or became injured by scraping against something.

Only the alleged shooter brandished a weapon.
