Steven Whidby, another neighbor, said Burnette Chapel used to be a country church with a largely white membership but has recently become more diverse, just like the surrounding neighborhoods in Antioch.

Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters that officers responded to the call at 11:15 a.m.

"This is a mass casualty situation".

This is a developing story and will be updated.

Police said one of the churchgoers has a gun permit and ran to his auto to retrieve his weapon, after which he confronted the suspect, who then shot himself.

All of the wounded have been transported to area hospitals; the majority of those wounded are older adults, according to the Fire Department. There is no word on the extent of the victims' injuries. At least two of those injured were reported to be in a critical condition.

"Gunman wounded and at hospital", the police said. Another person was pistol whipped by the shooter and taken to a local hospital. At this time, authorities aren't certain whether the shooting occurred during services.

The church is located at 3890 Pin Hook Road in Antioch. A dispatcher quoted by the Tennessean newspaper said the scene was still active.

According to Fox News, police said a suspect was taken into custody at the scene.
