Rome Police are on the scene of what at this time appears to be a murder-suicide.
According to Rome Police:
At around 7:00 a.m., officers were dispatched to a reported accident with injury near the Chick-fil-a on Shorter Avenue.
Prior to arrival, officers received more information that the incident was a shooting rather than an accident.
Initial investigation indicates that a man shot a woman and then shot himself.
The incident is not related to Chick-fil-a but rather occurred on the property of the restaurant.
The westbound lanes of Shorter Avenue were blocked for a while this morning and traffic was diverted through the Hobby Lobby parking lot. Shorter Avenue is now open again, but Chick-fil-a remains closed as police are on the scene investigating.
