A man was killed Sunday night in Hendersonville after police say he tried to harm an ex-girlfriend with whom he had a tumultuous relationship.
It began when officers heard gunshots as they arrived to a home on Wessington Place just after 8 p.m. on reports of domestic violence.
Once they made entry, they found 36-year-old Brian Davidson dead inside the home.
An investigation revealed Davidson had entered the home unlawfully with the intent of harming 46-year-old Shawna Brush.
Brush’s son, 18-year-old Connor Brush, ultimately exchanged gunfire with Davidson, allowing him and his mother to escape unharmed.
Davidson, who was struck by one of Brush’s bullets, then shot himself.
It is unclear which shot ultimately killed Davidson. The outcome of the investigation is pending and charges have not been filed.
Hendersonville police said Davidson and Shawna Brush had been together for 11 years and had two children together, ages eight and 10, who resided with Shawna.
There is a history of domestic incidents between the couple that began in 2006 with at least seven incidents following, five of which reportedly happened in the last three months alone.
Police reported Davidson recently bonded out of jail on June 28 after being charged with multiple crimes against Brush, including stalking and aggravated assault.
Further details were not immediately known.
More information is expected as authorities continue their investigation.
