ETOWAH, TN (WRCB) -

The victim in an officer involved shooting in Etowah has passed away.

The shooting happened around 8:00 Monday night on Highway 411 near the Bi-lo when an officer attempted to pull over Greenwood's vehicle for a traffic violation.

Greenwood backed up his vehicle into the officer's patrol vehicle at the intersection and fled.

Two other officers tried to stop him before he got out of his vehicle with a gun. The two officers fired their guns, hitting Greenwood and critically injuring him.

He was taken to UT Medical where he died.

Greenwood was a person of interest in the recent house fire on Jack Teasley Road in Nashville which left one woman dead. Deputies say the fire is still under investigation.

The officer's name has not been released.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is handling the investigation.
