Murfreesboro, Tennessee (WKRN) – A man killed himself after being reportedly fired by a police officer who was responding to a call for domestic violence.
Police said the incident occurred on Saturday at around 10:40 pm in the 1500-block duplex of Old Lascassas Spike in Murfreesboro. A policeman arrived at the scene and tried to talk to 49-year-old David Gaither. His wife told police that he was hostile and pierced walls and doors. As the policeman entered the house, Gazer came out of his bedroom, pointed his pistol at one of the policemen in the hallway, and triggered it.
The pistol broke down and police officers retreated for safety. According to police, Geyser chased them, fired two more bullets at the police in the front yard, then closed the front door and returned into the house.
After trying to get Geyser out of the house, police broke the door around 4:30 am on Sunday, sent in a robot, and began using gas to get Geyser out. When Geyser didn’t respond, police officers went inside and found him dead in his bedroom with a self-injured gunshot wound, police say.
During the incident, police officers did not fire weapons and were requested to undergo an autopsy.
The case remains under investigation while the American Red Cross is helping a neighbor evacuated for a long investigation.
