CORDOVA, TN (WMC-TV) - One person was killed Tuesday morning in a shooting outside a home in the 9100 block of Afton Grove Road.
Authorities said the incident happened around 4:30 a.m., as the victim, identified as 51-year-old Frederick Matting, arrived home from work.
Matting was apparently confronted by an unknown assailant, and the two began to fight. During the scuffle, Matting was shot multiple times.
"I two big pops of gunfire that didn't sound like a regular gun," a neighbor said. "It was just loud, like it was inside your room."
