WHITE BLUFF, TN (WSMV) -

Authorities in Dickson County are investigating a shooting Monday afternoon north of White Bluff.

The shooting was reported before 3 p.m. in the 100 block of Lincoln Road.

A witness said the property owner who lives in a trailer was attempting to evict a tenant living in a small building in the backyard.

An argument ensued, and witnesses say the landlord shot the tenant once in each leg after the tenant allegedly charged toward the landlord with a knife.

The landlord is now speaking with investigators in the Dickson Sheriff's Office.
