MEMPHIS, Tenn. –  A person is dead after a Shelby County Sherriff’s deputy  shot them Saturday morning, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI).

According to TBI, the Shelby County Sherriff’s Office deputy was conducting a traffic stop when they shot and killed the person.

It happened near Rosswood Avenue when the deputy approached a parked car, and tried to stop the driver from leaving the scene.

For reasons that are still under investigation, the situation escalated, and it resulted in the man driving off and dragging the deputy approximately 100 yards.

At some point, the deputy fired his gun at least one time, hitting the driver, TBI said.

The driver died on the way to the hospital.

The deputy is still in the hospital with serious injuries.

TBI agents continue to work to independently determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews.
