Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has identified the suspect in Friday's shooting as Matthew Paupp.

Hamilton County deputies responded to a burglary call at a house on Fuller Road Friday morning.

When they arrived, they heard shots being fired inside a house.

Paupp came out of the house, at one point, brandishing a weapon and pointing it at deputies. They responded by returning fire, injuring the suspect who was taken to a local hospital for examination and treatment. Paupp is said to be in stable condition.

Officials say no deputies were injured and the scene has been secured.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has been requested by District Attorney Neal Pinkston to investigate the incident.
