Authorities are on the scene of a shooting that left three people dead and one wounded in eastern Bradley County this morning, officials said.

The shooting, reported at 6:58 a.m., has claimed the lives of two male victims and a female victim, and another male victim was taken by Lifeforce to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Gault said.

Gault said he didn’t think any of the victims were children.

The shooting happened at 325 Baker Bridge Road, about a mile to 1.5 miles from the Polk County line, Gault said.

The surviving victim was flown out about 8:30 a.m., Gault said.

He said investigators have not determined whether the shooter is among the dead or has fled the scene.
