NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A fatal shooting at a Tennessee mall set off pandemonium, provoking an outsized police response in a city where a gunman killed several people at a Waffle House less than two weeks ago.
   Two 22-year-old men were fighting inside the Opry Mills Mall before one of them pulled out a pistol and fatally wounded the other. Police said the gunman then gave up his weapon and surrendered, saying he didn't want any more trouble.
   The city is still processing the April 22 attack on a Waffle House restaurant by a nearly naked gunman with an AR-15. Four people were killed and four others were injured in that shooting.
