Diputados intentaron detener a un conductor que tenía órdenes de arresto pendientes, sin embargo, el sospechoso no se detuvo y continuó conduciendo a casa, Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said according to Noticias 5 WCYB.
As deputies approached the house, they were shot at by someone inside the residence. The shooter hit one deputy who is now in critical condition at a hospital.
Some Sullivan County residents are now being asked to stay indoors after the suspect has barricaded himself inside the home.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is managing the investigation and Sheriff Cassidy is asking people to pray for the deputy.
