JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the fatal shooting of a fleeing suspect by a Crockett County Sheriff's deputy.
Tommy McCoy Jr. died after being shot Saturday night in Maury City.
TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm told The Jackson Sun the Pemiscot County, Mo., Sheriff's Office had been pursuing McCoy when he crossed the state line into Tennessee.
Authorities said Crockett County became involved in the chase when McCoy's car nearly struck an officer who was directing traffic at a fire scene.
Helm said the chase ended on Highway 88 when the 22-year-old McCoy got out of the car and ran, but was shot.
The TBI is still trying to determine how many officers were on the scene. The name of the deputy who shot McCoy wasn't released.
