The shooting took place near a plant run by Ficosa [FICOS.UL], a Spanish auto parts manufacturer, at around 10:30 a.m. local time in Cookeville, Tennessee, the Cookeville Police Department said on Twitter.

Three people were injured and one died, Cookeville Mayor Ricky Shelton said in a tweet, noting that the scene was secure just after noon and there was no danger to the community.
