Two are shot dead and third is killed by ‘a fleeing car’ after ‘multiple gunmen’ fire on 14 people near a Tennessee bar

Three people were killed after multiple gunmen fired shots outside a bar in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Police say at least 14 people were shot in the 2100 block of McCallie Avenue Sunday morning. Three others were struck by cars as they fled for safety.

Two of the deceased were killed in the shooting. The other died after being hit by a car. Several victims were hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. 

The attack comes just hours after multiple shooters fired into a large crowd of weekend revelers in downtown Philadelphia, killing three and injuring 11.

It is also the latest in a string of vicious shootings that have ripped across the US in recent weeks, including one at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma and at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

This is a developing story. More to come.
