BRISTOL, Tenn. — Three people were shot and killed during a Saturday evening domestic dispute at a Henson Road residence. The suspect, who was also shot during the incident, is in sheriff's custody and being treated at the Bristol Regional Medical Center.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office responded to 618 Henson Road around 5:45 p.m. Saturday on a call of multiple shots fired. The residence, a double-wide mobile home, is in the Bristol section of Sullivan County near the Bristol Caverns Highway.

Leslie Earhart, public information officer for the SCSO, said the call came from someone at the residence and the shooting appears to be domestic in nature. Multiple victims were taken to local hospitals, with one being airlifted.
