MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a 56-year-old man involved in a shooting incident with Mt. Juliet police officers.

Officers were called to Michael McNabb's home located on Stonegate Drive on December 15 after a family member reported McNabb had a gun and was threatening suicide.

McNabb reportedly told an officer over the telephone if police came to his home "they would be shot."

Upon arriving to the residence, police said McNabb appeared on the front porch with a handgun and refused commands from officers to drop his weapon.

Police opened fire after McNabb pointed a gun at a responding officer. McNabb was struck one time in the chest.

He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. He was arrested following his release from the hospital on Friday.

McNabb is charged with one count of aggravated assault. 

He remains jailed in Wilson County on a $75,000 bond.
