CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation identified the man killed in an officer-involved shooting on Saturday.

According to a release from the TBI, officers with the Clarksville Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block of Hedge Apple Drive for a domestic disturbance involving a shooting.

A press release from the Clarksville Police Department says a woman was shot inside the home.
