NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — District Attorney General Glenn Funk has asked the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to investigate a shooting involving an off-duty MNPD officer.
The agency confirmed its involvement Tuesday, saying the shooting happened just before 2:30 p.m. Monday after a crash on Dickerson Pike.
The TBI said preliminary information indicates that the driver — identified as 20-year-old Rod Reed — got out of the car and reached back inside for a gun on the dashboard. The agency said Boelter “fired several times,” striking and injuring Reed, who was taken to an area hospital.
Police said Tuesday that Reed was wanted by the ATF on federal gun and drug charges at the time of the shooting. He will be arrested when he's discharge from the hospital.
