Around 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 11, officers responded to a call regarding an active shooter in Franklin at the Marriott Cool Springs, according to the Franklin Police Department.
Once at the scene, officers located two victims and began rendering aid.
Before police arrived, the shooting suspect, 29-year-old Cody Wiggins, had fled the scene, police said. He was found a short while later in a nearby subdivision and police said he used a semi-automatic handgun during the shootings.
The victims, Wiggins’ wife and his brother-in-law, were transported to a local hospital and police have not provided an update on their condition. They were all reportedly in town for a wedding at the time of the incident.
Wiggins was arrested and booked into the Williamson County Jail, officials said.
