KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — An investigation is underway after a shooting that left one person dead and another hurt in the parking lot of Bebo's Café in West Knoxville early Sunday morning, the Knoxville Police Department said.

KPD said that around 1:50 a.m., officers responded to a shooting reported in the parking lot of Bebo’s Café at 8111 Gleason Drive. 

Upon arrival, officers said they found two shooting victims. 

One male victim, identified as 29-year-old Cedric Isom of Knoxville, was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers provided aid to the second male victim, who was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive his injuries, according to a press release. 

On Monday, KPD mentioned that the second male victim is still in the hospital after being shot in the leg. Responding officers quickly applied a tourniquet to the second victim’s leg to stop the large amount of bleeding, and he is expected to survive his injuries.

KPD believes that at least two people fired shots during the encounter and numerous people were in the immediate area when the shooting occurred. No suspects have been charged, but investigators are pursuing active leads.

The investigation is still ongoing.
