JEFFERSON CITY (WATE) – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened in Jefferson City after a Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy shot a man Friday night.
Deputies were dispatched to the 1200 block of Cora Road in Jefferson City for reports of a man arguing with everyone in the residence with a knife. As deputies arrived on the scene, they say James Rose, 56, came out with the knife and then reentered the residence.
Deputies then entered the home. A grandmother with two young children were also inside the home. Rose attacked the deputies and that’s when an officer fired one shot.
Rose was treated by deputies and EMS and was then airlifted by LifeStar to UT Medical Center, where he was treated.
Jefferson County Sheriff Bud McCoig said hours later Saturday morning, Kenneth Brown, 46, showed up at Jefferson Memorial Hospital with a stab wound to the face. Deputies said he had been stabbed by Rose and left the scene before investigators arrived.
Brown was treated and released on Saturday.
TBI is investigating and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is assisting in the investigation.
