RICEVILLE, Tenn. — A shooting broke in McMinn County on Saturday and the McMinn County Sheriff's Office said that four people died as a result. He also said a 10-month-old child was taken by suspects involved in the shooting.

Sheriff Joe Guy said that officers responded to calls about the shooting at around 9 a.m. on County Road 60, west of the Riceville community. When deputies arrived, they said they found two witnesses who had escaped the shooting and directed them to a home.



There, deputies found one man and three women dead from gunshot wounds. They identified the victims as Trevon Hall, 36, Skylar Hawn, 24, Jesse Dupree, 40, and Brandi Harris, 39.

The sheriff said that looked like there were originally six people at the home, and that a male suspect and female suspect arrived there after 8 a.m. He identified the suspects as Curtis D. Smith, a 38-year-old man from Etowah and Jazzmine J. Hall, a 27-year-old woman from Athens.

He said it looked like there was a dispute between Hall and the male victim over a 10-month-old child. The sheriff said they are the child's parents.

He said that at some point, the dispute turned violent and four people were shot.

One witness escaped, police said. Another pretended to be injured and survived the shooting, according to a release from police. The suspects took the child and left, police say.

The McMinn County Sheriff's Office said that both suspects in the shooting were taken into custody. Officials said they were found in a home just inside Polk County during a SWAT operation.

They also said that the 10-month-old child was safely found and given to the custody of the Department of Children's Services.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office helped find them, officials said.

Both Jazzmine Hall and Curtis Smith have been charged with four counts of premeditated, felony murders and attempted first degree murder. No bond has been set for the two suspects.

"This has been a challenging day for our community, and our prayers continue to be with the families of the victims of this terrible incident," said Sheriff Guy.
