SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WTVF) — One juvenile has died after a shooting and subsequent crash in Springfield.

Springfield police said officers were called to the area of 16th Avenue and Shelton Street around 11 p.m. Wednesday after a vehicle crashed into the front of a home.

Police said prior to the crash, the vehicle and its three occupants were involved in a shooting on Page Street. Smokey Barn News reported that the teen crashed after being shot. All three were taken to area hospitals, but one of the juveniles has since died.
