GUNZ: TN Father’s Celebratory Gunfire for Gender Reveal Prompts 3 School Lockdowns

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three schools in Tennessee were on lockdown Wednesday while officers investigated an incident of shots being fired nearby. The cause of the gunfire? An expectant father fired a weapon during a gender reveal phone call, officials said.

According to police, the soon-to-be father was calling relatives to reveal the gender of his child. The man then stepped outside and fired celebratory rounds into the air and the expectant mother screamed – apparently out of excitement.

A neighbor heard the shots and the scream and called 911. Because the shots were reported so close to several schools, they were briefly put on lockdown.

The soon-to-be father was cited for unlawful discharging of a firearm inside city limits..
