The shot camera is at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Interstate 640, one of 15 camera-equipped intersections in the Tennessee city.

The supposed shooter is one Clifford E. Clark, 47. He has been charged with felony vandalism and reckless endangerment “for allegedly firing at least three rounds from a .30-06 hunting rifle at the camera, knocking it out of action”.
