Updated at 4:22pm CST on 12/26/2017: The individual injured in the Humphreys County officer-involved shooting has been identified as Charles Dile, DOB 3-13-1976. He is currently at Vanderbilt Hospital receiving treatment for his wounds; current condition unknown.
At the request of 23rd District Attorney General Ray Crouch, TBI Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting in Humphreys County.
The incident occurred near the 500 block of Carmen Road in New Johnsonville, TN where preliminary information indicates officers from the New Johnsonville Police Department and the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Department were responding to a domestic call. Upon their arrival, the officers reportedly encountered a man with a firearm which resulted in at least one officer discharging their service weapon, striking the suspect. The suspect has been transported to a local hospital. No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident.
TBI Special Agents will gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence as part of this ongoing investigation. Throughout the process, Agents will submit investigative findings to the District Attorney General for their review and consideration. As a reminder: The TBI only acts as ‘fact-finders’ in its investigation. The determination as to whether the law enforcement officers’ actions were justified rests solely with the District Attorney General. Additionally, the TBI does not identify officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department.
Updates on this investigation will be posted online at TBINewsroom.com as they are available.
