At the request of 9th District Attorney General Russell Johnson, TBI Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting that occurred Saturday morning in Harriman.
Preliminary information indicates the incident occurred at approximately 10:30 a.m. ET, when deputies with the Roane County Sheriff’s Office responded to an incident at 352 Mays Valley Road. Deputies arriving at the scene were confronted with a male individual with a weapon, and that man, since identified as David Daugherty (DOB 6/19/1970), was shot during that confrontation. Daugherty was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment. No deputies were injured during the incident.
The investigative division of the District Attorney General’s Office is assisting in this investigation. TBI Agents will submit investigative findings to the office of the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration. As a reminder: The TBI acts as independent fact-finders in its investigations and any determination as to whether officers’ actions were justified rests solely with the District Attorney General.
The TBI does not identify officers involved in these types of investigations and, instead refers such inquiries to the respective local law enforcement agencies.
Additional updates on this investigation will be posted online at TBINewsroom.com.
