TBI: Man Shot After Waving Gun At Millersville Officers

Posted: Updated:

MILLERSVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation was called in to investigate after a man was shot during a traffic stop in Millersville Thursday evening.

The shooting happened just before 7:30 p.m. outside the Economy Inn on Louisville Highway near the Goodlettsville city limits.

The TBI said Millersville Police officers tried to initially stop the car off Lousiville Highway near the Goodlettsville line. A witness said he saw the driver go into the motel's parking lot and wave a gun out of his window.  

"He waved his gun right out of the window acting as though he was about to fire upon the detective that was directly behind him. Three cops come along the rightside flank of the car that the detective was driving, and fired up on him, at least 13 to 14 shots," said witness Tray Rhoton.

Rhoton said the man who was shot was living at the hotel.

The man was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. He was listed in stable condition, but his name was not immediately released.

No officers were injured.
