The Lawrenceburg Police Department issued the following release:

"Press Release:

On Saturday Nov 19th Lawrenceburg Police Officers we’re dispatched to Hinie’s BBQ on North Locust Avenue in reference to a shooting.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined a domestic related situation involving a patron occurred around 7:00 p.m. inside the restaurant.

The situation escalated when the male subject produced a handgun and fired two self inflicted shots in an apparent suicide attempt. The second shot incapacitated the subject at which point other patrons rendered first aid until EMS arrived on-scene.

The subject has been flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition. This appears to be an isolated domestic violence situation.

We ask for prayers for all involved as well as the individuals who witnessed this unfortunate event. The shooter was the only person injured in this incident.

Detectives will remain on-scene for several more hours, until the investigation is complete.
