MEIGS CO., TN (WRCB) - The FBI and multiple sheriff's departments are investigating a shooting on TVA property near the Watts Bar Plant.

Officials say a security guard was conducting a routine patrol when he came across a man on the property Sunday morning.

The guard questioned the man as to why he was there, that's when the suspect fired shots.

The guard shot back but the suspect fled before back-up arrived on scene.

The guard was not hurt but at least one round hit his patrol car.

The incident occurred outside the plant's protected area.

Staff confirmed there was no lapse in security measures.
