Greeneville shooting victim identified
Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have released more information surrounding the officer-involved shooting in Greeneville over the weekend. Tuesday afternoon the Bureau identified the man killed in the Sunday incident as Anthony Orlando Bowers of Asheville, North Carolina. According to TBI officials, officers with Greeneville Police attempted to make a traffic stop of a vehicle that was speeding on Tusculum Boulevard. The vehicle didn't stop, leading officers on a pursuit. The vehicle eventually stopped on Mason street where the driver got out and ran into an apartment complex. A female passenger, took the officers into an apartment so they could search for the driver. Inside, a second man, who did not live at the apartment, 'became combative, pulled a gun on the officers, and fired shots.' Two officers sustained minor injuries, and Bowers was dead on arrival at a Greeneville hospital.
