CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An hours-long standoff has ended in Clarksville after police say the person died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Clarksville police said the ordeal began around 6 a.m. Thursday when officers with special operations and the tactical unit tried to serve a narcotics search warrant at an apartment at 2869 Cobalt Drive, located off Terminal Road.
Initially, police said someone inside the apartment produced a "long gun" to officers. However, police later issued a correction, saying someone who left the apartment told them the person was inside with a gun and "was not going to come out peacefully."
"The individual did not produce a weapon in the officer's presence," according to police. Officers said they evacuated surrounding neighbors and asked everyone to avoid the area.
Police later identified the suspect as 23-year-old Dorris Acree, who was out on bond after he was charged in a 2019 homicide and attempted murder.
