Three shot near Tennessee auto parts plant -police

April 11 (Reuters) - Three people were shot, one fatally, outside an auto parts manufacturing plant in northern Tennessee on Tuesday morning, local officials said.

The shooting took place near a plant run by Ficosa , a Spanish auto parts manufacturer, at around 10:30 a.m. local time in Cookeville, Tennessee, the Cookeville Police Department said on Twitter.

Three people were injured and one died, Cookeville Mayor Ricky Shelton said in a tweet, noting that the scene was secure just after noon and there was no danger to the community.

Cookeville, a town of about 30,0000, is located around 80 miles (128 km) east of Nashville, Tennessee. (Reporting by Timothy Mclaughlin; Editing by Richard Chang)
