LIVINGSTON (AP) — Deputies in Tennessee have fatally shot a man while attempting to arrest him, authorities said.
Deputies from the Overton County Sheriff’s Office initially responded to a call Friday evening about a man brandishing a weapon at others, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a statement Monday.
Arriving deputies learned Jerry Henley, 42, had active warrants and attempted to arrest him, the statement said. During that attempt, they fired their weapons and Henley was fatally wounded, according to the bureau. The deputies were not injured.
Agents with the bureau were working to independently determine the events that led to the shooting and to gather all relevant evidence, officials said. No further information was immediately released.
