The victims in the weekend violence on McCallie Avenue in Chattanooga ranged from a 16-year-old male to a 49-year-old woman, police said in a news release Monday.

The release from spokesman Jeremy Eames identified those who died — two females, ages 24 and 25, and one male, 34.

Police declined a request to release the names of the victims. No information was released about the status of those taken to the hospital for treatment. Police over the weekend said 14 people were victims of a shooting in the 2100 block of McCallie, and three people were injured by vehicles when fleeing the scene.

Multiple people shot on McCallie Avenue in Chattanooga

Police responded to emergency calls shortly after 2:30 a.m., the release stated. Hamilton County emergency medical workers were dispatched, and the 34-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. Others, some with life-threatening injuries, were taken to local hospitals.

On Sunday afternoon, Chattanooga Police Chief Celeste Murphy and Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly held a news conference where they both said the city would not rest until the person or people responsible for the shootings were in custody. Officials said they suspect there were multiple shooters.

According to the release, the victims include females ages 24, 25, 25, 28, 30, 33, 34, 34 and 49; and males ages 16, 21, 26, 31, 32, 33, 34 and 35.

Eames said no arrests have been made, and police were not able to confirm anything on a possible suspect to the Chattanooga Times Free Press via email.

This shooting came eight days after another mass shooting that left six teenagers between 13 and 15 injured in downtown Chattanooga on May 28. An arrest has been made in connection to that shooting, a 15-year-old boy.

Police are urging anyone with any information about this incident to call 423-643-5100 or submit a tip via the Atlas One App. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
