Maryville man killed in police shooting

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A 27-year-old Maryville man who was an Iraq War veteran has been shot and killed by police in Maryville who say he was shooting at a driver and officers.

Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp told The Daily Times that police responded around 2:39 a.m. Thursday to shots being fired at a driver on East Broadway.

Crisp said an armed man shot at officers and he refused to drop his weapon. Maryville police officers and a Blount County deputy shot the suspect, who died at a hospital.

Stephanie Kirk of Maryville told the newspaper that the suspect was her brother, Theodore Jones IV, who was a former lance corporal in the Marine Corps and a 2004 graduate of Maryville High School.

The officers have been placed on administrative leave.
