Posted: Updated:

One person is dead and another recovering after a shooting in Cleveland.

Bradley County Sheriff's Deputies say Christopher Coty Tatum, 28, and Gaberila Wendy Gasparian, 33 were shot Sunday night at their home on Springplace Boulevard.

Tatum was taken to SkyRidge Medical Center where he later died. Gasparian was taken to Erlanger Medical Center and is expected to recover.

Investigators say there is indication alcohol and reckless handling of the gun occurred. Officials say the gun fired and the bullet went through Gasparian and Tatum before lodging in the couch.

Investigators say the discharge appears accidental but the investigation continues with the assistance of the District Attorney's Office to assess whether criminal charges are warranted.
