#AceDailyNews says TBI Agents Investigating Officer-Involved Shooting in Cumberland County according to a report by Susan Niland: Preliminary information indicates that around 9 p.m. Friday, dispatchers received a report of a pick-up truck traveling eastbound in the westbound lane of I-40 near mile marker 311.

Initial information from the scene indicates the man brandished a handgun and ran towards the deputy. The deputy fired at the man, striking him. The individual was pronounced deceased at the scene. No officers were injured in the incident. The identity of the man who was shot is being withheld at this time pending notification of relatives. The Tennessee Highway Patrol Critical Response Team provided assistance during this incident.

TBI agents are working to independently determine the set of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews. Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the district attorney general for his further review and consideration.

The TBI acts as facts-finders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters. That decision rests with the district attorney general requesting TBI’s involvement.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents, and instead refers questions of that nature to the respective department to answer as it sees fit.
