A man and three women were found dead in Tennessee on Saturday morning in what appeared to be a dispute over a child, the report said.
Nashville’s FOX 17 reported a man and a woman were arrested Saturday night on suspicion of involvement in the incident and the baby was rescued safely.
According to the station, the incident took place in Riceville, about 50 miles northeast of Chatanuga, after the two suspects arrived at a residence.

McMahon County Sheriff Joe Guy told WAT-TV in Knoxville that “there was a kind of dispute between the suspected female and male victims over the 10-month-old baby.” “At one point, the dispute escalated and four people were shot. One eyewitness escaped and the other pretended to be injured and survived. The suspects then took the child and left the scene.”
Deputies responding to the residence found the body in Trevon Hall, 36; Skyler Haon, 24; Jesse Dupree, 40; And Brandy Harris, 39, according to Fox 17.
Hall and the female suspect were the parents of the child, authorities told the station.

Authorities later arrested two suspects, Curtis Smith (,) and Jazmin Hall (2) during a SWAT operation in Pollock County on Saturday.
The specific allegations considered or filed against Smith and Hall were not immediately clear.
Knoxville’s WBIR-TV reported that the child was placed under the care of the State Department of Child Services.
Saturday’s shooting in Riceville came two days after an incomplete shooting in the Memphis area, where gunmen opened fire at a cruiser supermarket, killing at least one person and injuring 114 others. The suspect took his own life after that incident, Fox 13 of Memphis reported.
