BREAKING: Heavy police presence at Waffle House on E. 23rd Stree

Hours earlier, Chattanooga police detained one person after two people were reportedly shot near the entrance to the city’s Riverbend music festival, outside the Tennessee Aquarium.

Both victims were shot in a parking lot, then were taken away for medical treatment but their conditions were unknown, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported.

Police initially barred festival-goers from accessing their cars after the evening’s performances because investigators were still working in the parking area, which was considered an active crime scene, reports said.

A Chattanooga police officer is in stable condition after being shot at the Waffle House on East 23rd Street at around 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

Performers at the event included rapper Macklemore. It was the final night of the festival, the Times Free Press reported.
