A teenager in Nashville is suspected of opening fire on relatives after his mother and grandmother tried to wake him up for school on Tuesday morning.

According to the Tennessean, police spokesperson Kris Mumford has stated, "There was a quarrel about getting up and getting ready for the day when (at some point) the 16-year-old ran to a closet, got a 9 mm handgun and started firing."
