DEKALB COUNTY – A joint investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department, and the District Attorney’s Office for the 13th Judicial District, has resulted in the arrest of a DeKalb County man on a second degree murder charge.
At the request of 13th District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway, TBI Special Agents joined DeKalb County deputies and investigators with the DA’s office in investigating a shooting that occurred shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday at a residence on Eckles Heights Road in Liberty. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Tyler Durden (DOB 8/26/1982), approached the residence of his mother and stepfather, Wayne Fisher. Fisher came to the door, and during that encounter, fired a weapon, striking Mr. Durden. The victim was ultimately transported to a Nashville hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
Thursday night, Wayne Fisher (DOB 1/06/1969) was arrested and charged with one count of Second Degree Murder. He was booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where he is being held on a $500,000 bond.
