Updated 06/07/19 at 2:35 p.m. ET: The individual involved in this incident has died. He’s been identified as Jason Nash (DOB 04/24/73), of Bristol.
At the request of 2nd District Attorney General Barry Staubus, TBI Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting that occurred Friday morning in Bristol.
Preliminary information indicates that just before 9:30, officers with the Bristol Tennessee Police Department responded to a residence on Crown Circle to assist a homeowner in serving a court order on her estranged husband. Upon entering the residence with the homeowner, officers were confronted by a male subject. At some point during the encounter, the man reportedly reached for a gun, resulting in one officer firing a shot and striking the subject. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No officers were injured during the incident.
This remains an active and ongoing investigation, as TBI Special Agents continue to work to gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence. As in any case, TBI’s investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General throughout the process for his review.
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.
Any updates on this investigation will be posted online at TBINewsroom.
