Suspect In Officer-Involved Shooting Surrenders

A suspect in an officer-involved shooting in Nashville has turned herself in to police.

Officials with Metro Nashville Police received a tip on December 13 to check out a room at the Cumberland Inn in East Nashville.

When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with a woman who allowed them inside, leading to one of the officers being shot.

Kathleen Daly surrendered early Monday morning and has been charged with attempted murder. 

She gave officers a fake name and told police she was alone in the room, investigators said. 

When officers began checking for others, Paul Hardesty allegedly opened the bathroom door and fired his shotgun, hitting Officer Terrance McBride in the shoulder.

McBride and his partner fired back and then left the room.

Dozens of officers arrived at the motel on West Trinity Lane where they evacuated other guests.

Officers believed Hardesty was still inside the motel room. However, he had already turned the shotgun on himself.

At some point during that commotion, Daly ran away and hadn't been seen since. 

Police said both Daly and Hardesty remain under investigation in relation to a number of robberies and burglaries across middle Tennessee.

Officer McBride survived the shooting and remains at home recovering from the shotgun blast.
