1 killed, 2 injured in shootout at house

GREENVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A 21-year-old man is dead and two others injured after a shooting in eastern Tennessee.

Green County Sheriff Steve Burns says 21-year-old Zachary Ryan Nave died Friday night in a shooting that occurred about 9:20 p.m. Friday at his home.

Burns told The Greenville Sun that the shootings took place in the basement of the house.

Burns says investigators were working on determining who fired the shots that killed Nave and wounded the two other men, but that there was an exchange of gunshots.

Burns says Brendan A. Royer was shot in the foot and flown Friday night by Wings Air Rescue to the Johnson City Medical Center, and 20-year-old Travis D. Monroe who was shot four times in a reported confrontation with Nave and Royer.
