SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is responding to an officer-involved shooting in Robertson County at Rawls Auto Salvage.

Around 3 p.m. a Robertson County deputy responded to a report of a stolen vehicle on the 4400 block of Kinneys Road in Springfield.

During the interaction, the driver accelerated toward the deputy, prompting the deputy to fire his gun, according to the TBI. The driver sped away, and the deputy followed after. The driver got about two miles down the road when the deputy made a traffic stop and found that the driver had a gunshot wound.

The driver was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The deputy suffered a minor injury in the incident.

The TBI says it is working to independently determine exactly what led up to the shooting, as well as gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence.
