A police officer is recovering after being shot at a Nashville, Tennessee, home to which he was lured on Tuesday night, according to reports.

Nashville Metro Police Officer Brian Sherman was responding to a call about an active shooter at the residence when someone inside opened fire after he knocked on the door.

Authorities believe the suspect, identified as 22-year-old Salman Mohamed, made a “setup call” to 911 to lure officers into a premeditated ambush.


Mohamed reportedly claimed his mother had been shot and urged officers to hurry to the residence, police spokesman Don Aaron told media.

“This was a ruse to get the police to the house,” Aaron said.

Mohamed died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound during a brief standoff, police say.

The suspect’s mother and three siblings were discovered unharmed inside the home.


Officer Sherman received medical treatment at a local hospital and was released on Tuesday night, according to WZTV.
