Tennessee Officers Shoots Poaching Suspect
From The Cattanoogan:
According to a news release from the Lewis County Sheriff's Dept., Tuesday night (Nov. 25) around 8:30 pm, Lewis County deputies were called to assist a Lewis County TWRA Wildlife Officer . . . who [had] seen a vehicle spotlighting for deer and attempted a stop. The vehicle however fled at high speed.
[After the chase and with the driver in hand,] the passenger exited the passenger side with a long gun, turned toward the three Lewis County Deputies and the T.W.R.A officer and pointed [it] toward them.
One Lewis County Deputy fired his service weapon at the passenger and the passenger fell to the ground.
