Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agents started an investigation into the incident that started Monday at about 10 a.m. when Morristown police officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute at a home.
When officers arrived, they encountered Lanny Carroll, 52, behind the house. At some point during the confrontation, Carroll reached for a gun, which resulted in one of the officers shooting Carroll at least once. No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident.
The investigation into the shooting remained ongoing.
