2 dead, 1 injured after barricade situation ends in Clarksville


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A husband and wife were killed and another person was hurt in what police called a domestic-related homicide Thursday night.

Officers were called to a home on Dandelion Court just before 9 p.m. after receiving reports that gunshots had been fired.

Arriving officers heard gunfire coming from inside the garage of the home, according to Clarksville police. Investigators said officers then found a woman on the porch and a man in a neighbor’s yard, both of whom had been shot.

Officers used tactical shields to approach the home and remove the woman to awaiting medics.

The woman, identified as Janie Brown, was pronounced dead at the scene while the 19-year-old man was flown to a Nashville hospital. He is said to have non-life threatening injuries.

Clarksville police said the shooter was believed to still be inside the home and the department’s tactical unit and crisis negotiations were called to the scene.

Tactical officers entered the home around 1 a.m. and found the man, identified as Tony Brown, dead inside the garage. Police said the 56-year-old man is believed to be the shooter.

Nearby Tiny Town Road was closed for a period of time for the public’s safety.
