The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says its agents are now looking into a shooting involving a Kentucky deputy and a suspect armed with a knife.
The shooting happened on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line in Weakly County. A Hickman County, Kentucky deputy was pursuing a man who crossed state lines in a vehicle. Investigators say the suspect then left the vehicle following a crash and started running.
Agents say the suspect later stole a man's car in Tennessee before Kentucky law enforcement spotted him again. A deputy later caught up with the man, who was armed with a knife.
Investigators have identified the suspect as Salvador Byassee of Clinton, Kentucky. The deputy was unharmed.
Deputies say the pursuit started when Byassee refused to stop at a Kentucky State Police sobriety check. State police joined deputies in the pursuit as well.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is now handling the investigation.
