At the request of 23rd District Attorney Ray Crouch, TBI Special Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting that occurred Monday night in Ashland City.
Preliminary information indicates that shortly before 9 p.m. central time, Cheatham County deputies were dispatched to respond to a call that a woman had been nearly run off the road near the 1500 block of Sams Creek Road. When officers arrived at the area, they saw a vehicle backing out of a driveway in the vicinity of where that call had been reported. Deputies initiated a traffic stop in the driveway to try to determine whether that vehicle was involved at all in the incident. As the stop was being conducted, a male resident of the home, Charles Holland, 44, came out of the house with a long gun, and began walking toward the driveway where the stop had taken place. At some point during this encounter, deputies fired at him, striking him. He was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital, where he is being treated. At last check, he was listed in Stable condition. No law enforcement officers were injured.
The investigation remains active and ongoing.
The TBI Violent Crimes Response Team from Nashville with Special Agent- Forensic Scientists is responding to the scene, and Agents are working through the night to gather evidence and conduct interviews.
As is our policy, TBI does not identify the officers involved in officer-involved shootings. We refer questions of that nature to their respective agencies.
As with any case the TBI investigates, our investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General throughout the process for his review and consideration.
As we have additional information we are able to provide, it will be updated on this site.
