Updated 1/20/18 at 4:10 p.m. CT: The individual who was shot has been identified as Kenneth Charles Rogers, DOB 10/19/1965.

At the request of 11th District Attorney General Neal Pinkston, TBI Special Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting that occurred Friday morning in Hamilton County.

Preliminary information indicates that a Hamilton County deputy was responding to a call at the 1900 block of Wilkes Avenue in Soddy Daisy. While attempting to make an arrest of a male individual outside of that residence, the deputy fired a shot, reportedly striking the individual in the leg. The male was transported to Erlanger Medical Facility, where he is being treated. The deputy did not sustain any injuries. The name of the individual who was shot is not being released at time.

TBI Special Agents continue to work the scene, interviewing witnesses and gathering any and all evidence as part of this active and ongoing investigation. As in any case, our investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General throughout the process, for his consideration and review. That office will subsequently make any charging determinations.

As is our policy, the TBI does not identify the 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.
