GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Authorities are investigating after a crash led to an officer-involved shooting Monday afternoon.
It happened in the 1300 block of Dickerson Pike in Goodlettsville.
Metro police reported the incident began after a 20-year-old man — later identified as Rod Reed — was driving a Chevrolet Camaro and hit a mother and daughter in a Nissan Altima. Reed was reportedly driving at a high rate of speed.
While medics were tending to the mother and daughter, a school resource officer who happened to be driving by, stopped at the scene.
The officer — later identified as Officer Byron Boelter — pulled over and asked Reed to get out of his car. At that point, Officer Boelter noticed a gun sitting on the man’s dashboard.
Reed allegedly reached for his gun. Officer Boelter then pulled his own gun and shot Reed in the leg.
No other shots were fired in the incident.
Reed, along with the mother and daughter, were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. They are all expected to be OK.
Officer Boelter was not injured. Metro police said a gun was recovered at the scene.
On Tuesday, Metro police reported Reed was wanted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on federal gun and drug charges. He is expected to be charged upon his release from the hospital.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is now taking over the investigation.
