- So remember when we told you that Oktoberfest was becoming the Germantown Street Festival? The Tennessean steered us wrong.

- The student who was shot at Central High School this morning in Knoxville died several hours later at UT Medical Center. The motivation for the shooting is still unclear, though the students were reportedly arguing just before it happened. [WKRN]
- Local musician Will Hoge is in critical condition after crashing his scooter into a van that failed to yield late last night. He’s expected to recover, and we’re hoping he’ll be all healed up and ready to go for his September 20th performance at Mercy Lounge. Get well soon, Will! [Tennessean]
