TBI agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting that occurred last night in Anderson County. Officers responded to the 600 block of West Broad Street in Clinton for a man near the road with a gun. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the man, who was threatening to harm himself. In an attempt to deescalate the situation, officers tried to negotiate with the subject and convince him to drop the weapon. At some point during the exchange, the individual reportedly pointed the gun at officers, resulting in the officers firing their service weapons, striking him. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The name of the male subject is currently being withheld pending the notification of relatives. No law enforcement officers were injured during the incident.
