People scramble as shots fired in Nashville park

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Witnesses say dozens of people scrambled for cover in Nashville when shots were fired in Centennial Park where a weekly outdoor movie had just ended.

Police said in a news release Thursday that a 15-year-old was wounded in his left knee Wednesday night and quoted him as saying he flashed gang signs just before shots were fired. No one has been arrested.

This is the 16th year for free, weekly summer movies in the park -- the site of a replica of the Parthenon. The movies make the park a popular spot on nights they are shown.
