ARLINGTON, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating a shooting in Arlington that left one person dead Wednesday.

Investigators were in and out of the home all day looking for clues as to what happened.

The victim has not been identified; however, neighbors say the person had recently moved in.

Arlington Mayor Mike Wissman says he doesn’t want residents to be alarmed.

“People kind of come out here for schools and safety -- that’s the two things we hear the most,” said Wissman. “So anytime there’s an incident it kind of sets especially with social media how the information starts getting out before the actual facts do. It’s one of those things where we’re a very safe community still. It’s just unfortunate.”

Deputies have not released any suspect information at this time.

If you have any information on this case, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
