Police fatally shoot man who barricaded himself in house
BARTLETT, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in Tennessee say officers fatally shot a man who had barricaded himself inside a home and fired several shots in the residence.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says it is investigating the death of 38-year-old Toby Bailey in the Memphis suburb of Bartlett early Wednesday.
TBI says officers went to a home Tuesday night on a domestic violence call when Bailey ran inside and threatened officers.
TBI says Bailey fired several shots inside the home before SWAT officers from the Bartlett Police Department deployed tear gas and entered.
Officers reported Bailey raised a handgun toward police before at least two officers shot him. The officers’ names and races have not been released.
TBI says police, family members and a pastor tried to convince Bailey, who was black, to surrender.
