Morristown officer involved shooting
At the request of 3rd District Attorney General Dan Armstrong, TBI Special Agents are investigating the circumstances that led to an officer-involved shooting Thursday morning in Morristown. Preliminary information indicates that just before 10:00 AM EST, officers with the Morristown Police Department observed Kenneth Carter, 45, of Morristown, who was known to have outstanding warrants, inside a vehicle parked in the 400 block of Hayter Drive. As officers attempted to take the subject into custody, he began driving toward officers in an effort to get away, hitting two police vehicles in the process. During the escalation of events, one of the officers fired his service weapon into the subjectís vehicle, striking him. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. A female passenger in the subjectís vehicle was not injured. Additionally, no law enforcement officers were injured during the incident. TBI Special Agents will gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence as part of this ongoing investigation, and investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General throughout the process for his consideration and review.
