COLUMBIA, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person was found with a gunshot wound at a gas station in Columbia. The store is located across the street from Spring Hill High School.

The incident was reported Friday afternoon from the Quick Mart Shell station on Nashville Highway. When officers arrived they found the victim with a gunshot wound. The school’s resource officer was the person who called the shooting into police. Police say the shooting took place at a home in the area.

The victim was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where he later died. Investigators were interviewing those involved and were not actively looking for any suspects.

Both Spring Hill middle and high schools were briefly placed on hard lockdown but that has since been lifted.
