WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) — One man died early Wednesday morning when a multi-county chase led to an officer-involved shooting in Jonesborough.

A release from the TBI revealed the incident began in Greene County when a deputy saw a “suspicious vehicle” in the parking lot of a Mosheim business shortly before 3 a.m. The driver, identified by the TBI as Tyler Michael Gardner, 27, reportedly had outstanding warrants and was asked to step out of the vehicle but refused.

Gardner then allegedly drove out of the parking lot and led deputies on a pursuit onto Interstate 81 North. The chase eventually entered Washington County, and a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper began assisting in the pursuit at one point.

The release states that the chase ended after “Gardner drove into a field at the intersection of 5 Oaks Road and Leesburg Road in Jonesborough.” Gardner then reportedly got out of the vehicle and ran from the scene.

According to the TBI, the THP trooper tried to apprehend Gardner, who was reportedly armed. Gardner allegedly resisted the trooper’s attempts to subdue him.

“At some point during the struggle, for reasons still under investigation, the trooper fired shots, striking Gardner,” the release states. “He was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The TBI reports no officers were injured during the incident.

The TBI is investigating the incident at the request of First Judicial District Attorney General Steve Finney.
