According to the Clarksville Police Department, a male teenager was shot around 12:30 a.m. in the 2000 block of Post Road.

When officers arrived, the homeowners told police that a family member had been shot inside the home.

The victim was taken to Tennova Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. His name has not been released.
