Associated Press

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Authorities say nine people were shot when a fight broke out at a Chattanooga nightclub, where some 400 teens and adults were attending a Christmas party. Police say all those shot are expected to survive.

Chattanooga police said in a press release Sunday morning that an off-duty officer who had been working at Club Fathom fired shots at a suspect who pointed a gun at him, but the gunman got away. The officer was not wounded.

Police Chief Bobby Dodd tells WTVC-TV that a fight broke out at the club around midnight.

No arrests have been made, and it was not immediately known how the fight started.

Police say they are still working to gather details because of the number of victims and possible suspects involved.
