A man wielding a gun, a hatchet and pepper spray was killed inside a Tennessee movie theater on Wednesday after police responding to reports of an active shooter traded gunshots with the suspect, Nashville police said.

Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters that one moviegoer was wounded by a hatchet before a SWAT team killed the suspect. The wounded person had a superficial injury, fire department spokesman Brian Haas said.

No one has been transported to a hospital, Haas said, but three people suffered irritation from pepper spray apparently used by the suspect.
