Man Shot In Parking Lot of Cookeville Hospital

A man was reportedly shot in the parking lot of Cookeville Regional Medical Center Wednesday night, causing the hospital to go on lockdown for a brief period of time. It happened about 7:30 pm, and hospital officials say the lockdown continued until 8:05 pm. Authorities say the 43-year-old victim was not a hospital employee and was not a patient there at the time of the shooting. He was treated at the hospital after the shooting incident and was reported to be in stable condition. The alleged shooter reportedly turned himself into police a short time later, but authorities have yet to release the names of either the suspect or the victim.
