Police say a disgruntled employee fired shots into multiple vehicles just before 10 a.m. in a parking lot at the plant on Passmore Lane near the Highway 45 Bypass.

Troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol later intercepted the alleged gunman near Old Humboldt Road and Ashport Road.

A WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News reporter on scene saw officers take a man into custody who appeared to be naked.

Passmore Lane is closed to traffic and will be for several hours while officers process the crime scene, according to police.

Stanley Black & Decker released the following statement in response to the shooting.

“This morning a temporary employee committed an act of workplace violence in the parking lot of our Jackson Facility. We are thankful that no one was hurt and grateful to the local law enforcement for their extremely rapid response and apprehension of the suspect.”
