Ex-Lenoir City officer in custody after woman shot several times

Posted: Updated:

A former Lenoir City police officer is behind bars after shooting a woman several times Saturday afternoon, according to Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton.

Jeremy Alexander Gambrell was arrested Saturday evening at his Roane County home, following a standoff with sheriff's officials that lasted about four hours. Public records show he's 41 years old and goes by the name Alex.

Sheriff Stockton said this was a matter of ongoing divorce proceedings and his office has been called to this home in the past.

For about four hours Saturday afternoon, officials with the Roane County Sheriff's Office blocked off a half-mile stretch of Blair Road, just south of Hannah Highway. That kept the public away from a house in the 100 block of Bridges Drive, which branches off of and runs parallel to Blair Road.
