SPRINGFIELD, Tenn.— A Robertson County man wanted for questioning in connection with a deadly house fire has died after a shootout with officers in east Tennessee.

The Robertson County Sheriff's Office said 49-year-old David Greenwood died following the shootout Monday night with Etowah police officers in McMinn County

Etowah Police said Greenwood opened fire on officers outside the Bi-Lo on Highway 411 around 8 p.m., and they returned fire.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Greenwood was injured, and taken to a Knoxville hospital. He died from his injuries Tuesday morning.

The Robertson County Sheriff's Office named him as a person of interest in Sunday's deadly house fire on Jack Teasley Road in Pleasant View.

When the fire was put out, they found the body of Greenwood's girlfriend, Kim Moran, inside the home. Authorities said the couple lived together. 

An autopsy was under way to determine whether Moran was killed before or after the blaze.
