Upon being confronted, the man ran, leading the officer on a foot pursuit……………..A second officer caught up to the man in the 200 block of Academy Street and attempted to take him into custody………….For reasons still under investigation, during the encounter, the man pulled a gun and fired at the officer……………………..Both officers returned fire, striking the subject………….He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead……….Efforts to positively identify the man remain ongoing. No officers were injured during the incident.

This continues to be an active and ongoing investigation, as TBI Special Agents, assisted by a team of Forensic Scientists, gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence: As in any case, our investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General throughout the process for his consideration and review.
