The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has concluded its investigation into a fatal officer-involved shooting in Nashville.

The TBI took over the investigation back in February after Jocques Clemmons was killed in a shooting involving Metro Nashville Police Officer Josh Lippert. 

Metro Police conducted their own investigation, similar to what they have done for years; but after outcry from the community, District Attorney General Glenn Funk asked the TBI to step in.

The department completed its separate investigation into Clemmons' case on March 23.

In the future, the TBI will investigate any incident involving the use of force by a MNPD Officer, or person holding a MNPD Special Police Commission that results in a fatality.

As of Wednesday, DA Funk had received the report. It’s not clear when it would be made public.
