HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WATE) — The Roane County Sheriff’s Office confirms the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is on the scene of a Roane County officer-involved shooting.

According to TBI, the suspect has been identified as 47-year-old David Daugherty. Daugherty had a weapon in his hand when he was shot.

Daugherty was airlifted to a hospital for treatment. Another suspect at the scene was taken into custody.

One neighbor says she heard the domestic dispute in the morning before deputies arrived. She said she wasn’t sure what was happening but started to pray for everyone involved.

“After the ambulance came, fire engines and police and everything. After a while, the medevac helicopter landing in a field right beside us. You pray for the best.” said Marlene, a neighbor on Mays Valley Road.

Marlene says she first heard yelling, then gunshots. That’s when she says she kept praying to stay calm.

“I knew that somebody sounded angry… I had no idea what was going on what so ever. I think pretty soon I asked the Lord to help whoever was involved in the situation, so that sort of got me through without having a heart attack.” said Marlene.

The Sheriff Office said the shooting occurred when officers responded to a domestic disturbance call.

No word on the suspect’s current condition has been released.
