Authorities say three people were killed and a child was injured during a shooting spree at a home in eastern Tennessee.

Sullivan County sheriff's spokeswoman Leslie Earhart says the alleged shooter was wounded during the rampage and was taken into custody a short time later in a nearby driveway. His identity was not released, but Earhart says he's related to the victims.
