The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is looking into an officer-involved shooting in Coffee County around 3 p.m. yesterday. TBI agents say the incident took place on Interstate 24 West after a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper was called there for a vehicle accident. While the trooper was on the scene, a male driver walked over to a vehicle involved in the accident and retrieved a gun. He then fired the gun, causing the trooper to return fire. The male driver died at the scene and the trooper was not injured. More information, including the identities of those involved, will be released at a later time by the TBI.
