At the request of 14th District Attorney Craig Northcott, TBI special agents are independently investigating the circumstances that led to an officer-involved shooting by deputies with the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office in the early morning hours Tuesday.

Shortly before midnight, deputies responded to a 911 call from Evan Krenson, 20 years old of Decherd threatening suicide. Deputies encountered the man in a vehicle on the Wattendorf Highway Bridge over I-24 (Exit 117). Krenson exited his vehicle with a pistol, later determined to be a paintball training pistol, and fired, striking one deputy. Deputies returned fire, striking the man. Krenson is currently being treated in a Nashville hospital. The deputy received a minor injury from the incident.

The investigation remains active and ongoing, as TBI Agents continue to gather any and all relevant evidence, interviews, and information. Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents.
