COLUMBIA, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person has now died, having succumbed to their injuries, and two others are critically injured following a shooting in Maury County. The suspect in the shooting has been identified as 37-year-old Samuel Modine.

The incident was reported at about 2:15 a.m. Friday on Brown Hollow Road, just west of Columbia.

Maury County Sheriff Bucky Rowland said the caller told dispatchers he shot three people and asked to send help.

Reporter Mo Haider saw two children being removed from the home. Both were visibly upset.

Rowland said the two children, who are under 3 years old, are both safe and in the care of the Department of Children's Services

A NewsChannel 5 crew at the scene reports Brown Hollow Road was shut down near Williamsport Pike but has since reopened.

Three victims, two females and one male, were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with critical injuries. One of the victims has since passed away due to their injuries.

Rowland said Modine and the victims are friends and include the mother of the children.

According to the sheriff's office, Modine did not legally own the gun due to his criminal history.

Modine has been charged with first degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
