Rose indictment
A Jefferson County man involved in an officer-involved shooting on December 23, 2016, has been indicted by a Jefferson County Grand Jury. James Rose, who allegedly was armed with a knife when he attempted to attack officers, now is charged with two counts aggravated assault on an officer. Jefferson County Sheriff G.W. “Bud” McCoig said his deputies responded to a residence at 1238 Cora Road, Jefferson City, following reports that Rose was arguing with everyone in the home while armed with a knife. When officers arrived on the scene, the 56 year-old suspect came outside the home armed with the knife and then re-entered the residence. When deputies entered the home, they found a grandmother with two young children, and at that time “the male attacked the deputies with the knife. Deputies then fired one shot sticking the male,” the sheriff said. Rose was treated by deputies and Jefferson County EMS personnel before being flown to UT Hospital where he was treated and then released the following day. Two days later, a 46 year-old male walked into Jefferson Memorial Hospital with a stab wound to the face. The subsequent investigation revealed that the victim had been stabbed while arguing with Rose, before the suspect attacked the deputies at his home. The injured man had left the scene before officers arrived. The stabbing victim was treated and released from the Jefferson City facility.
