The shooting was reported shortly before 6 a.m. at the facility in Antioch, a neighborhood of southeastern Nashville, the Metro Nashville Police Department said.

Responding officers found two employees had been shot, and both were taken to a hospital, police said.

The suspected gunman was shot by police, and the suspect also was taken to a hospital, police said.

SmileDirectClub, a Nashville-based company that makes clear plastic teeth aligners,
said: “the incident was contained quickly by security personnel on-site.”
“The safety of our team members is a top priority for our company and we maintain strict security protocols and a no-weapons policy at all of our facilities,” the company

SmileDirectClub is known primarily for working with dentists and orthodontists to sell clear aligners online as an alternative to traditional braces.

The Antioch neighborhood is about a 12-mile drive southeast of downtown Nashville.
