CROSSVILLE, TN--Authorities believe the four people found shot to death in a car in central Tennessee were deliberately targeted and not the victims of random violence.
Cumberland County Deputy District Attorney General Gary McKenzie said investigators are still working to identify the victims. He described them as young and said some may be juveniles. He also said at least one of the victims was female.
The bodies were discovered by a resident of the Renegade Mountain resort community who saw the parked car on his way to work at about 7 a.m. Thursday. The community is on 3,000 wooded acres, about 50 miles west of Knoxville.
McKenzie said investigators have developed leads they are pursuing. They do not believe the shooter was among the victims.
