SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) -

A man was shot and killed in a neighborhood just next to Bartlett Elementary School.

Shelby County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to reports of a shooting at around 11 a.m. on Pipers Green Lane, which is located across the street from the school.

The school went on a precautionary lockdown for 30 minutes, with classes continuing inside without delay.

Deputies said the shooting victim was already dead by the time they arrived at the scene. The suspected shooter was also still there. He surrendered to deputies and answered questions about what happened.

SCSO investigators are calling the shooting part of a domestic dispute.

Neighbors were shocked to learn of the violence.

"This is really a safe neighborhood," Carol Greene said.
