Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation responded to an officer-involved shooting in Portland.

The shooting happened Thursday night around 8 p.m. Portland police officials said it started with an attempted traffic stop, which led to a foot pursuit. 

The suspect crashed on Denning Ford Road, and that's when police say the driver tried to run away and, at some point, an officer shot the suspect.

The suspect was taken to the hospital, but officials did not release the suspect's condition. The TBI responded to the scene and is investigating.
