Springfield Police say Hamill shot two people Wednesday night in the Oakland Farms development.

The Tennessean reports that a 59-year-old woman and a 65-year-old man had been shot multiple times in the leg and side area.

Initial reports are that Hamill used a shotgun, hitting both victims with buckshot.

Hamill has been charged with domestic aggravated assault, aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon in connection with the case.

The victims were transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center, and expected to recover.

Hamill was booked into Robertson County Jail Thursday morning on $16,000 bond.
