Posted at 2:13 PM, Feb 22, 2017

Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said they’re seeking the identity of a man captured in surveillance photos who was the passenger in Jocques Clemmons’ vehicle just before Clemmons was shot and killed by a Metro officer.

Reports stated the man in the photos was a passenger in Clemmons’ vehicle during a traffic stop on February 10.

The man then got out of the vehicle and immediately left the area on foot while the exchange was taking place between 31-year-old Clemmons and the officer, identified as Josh Lippert. During that exchange, Officer Lippert fired his gun, fatally wounding Clemmons.

TBI agents said they’re searching for the man with the hope that he may have information to assist with the ongoing case.

Anyone with more information or the man’s identity has been urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).
