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.
