BULLETS FIRED at Nashville Synagogue – No One Injured

Bullets were fired Monday morning at the West End Synagogue in Nashville this morning.

No one was hurt in the shooting.

A maintenance man heard a loud noise then saw the bullet hole.

The synagogue was founded in 1874 in downtown Nashville.
The Tennessean reported:

Mark Freedman, executive director for the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, said the Jewish Community in the Middle Tennessee region is on high alert.

“Every synagogue and Jewish institution has been notified through our security team,” Freedman said Monday. “Naturally we are always concerned when incidents especially like this one come up.”

He said Jewish institutions are implementing heightened security measures and that he is in constant communication with police to follow up on the incident and to ensure security until it is certain there is not a continuing threat.

West End Synagogue has more than 400 members and is affiliated with the conservative Judaism movement. Aaron said the incident happened before anyone arrived inside the synagogue.

The synagogue was founded in 1874 as Kal Kodesh Adath Israel in downtown Nashville.
