UPDATE: TBI names suspect in morning shooting

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.


PREVIOUS STORY: Hamilton County Sheriff's Office deputies are at the site of an officer-involved shooting Friday morning on Fuller Road in the East Brainerd area.

Both lanes of Fuller Road are currently closed while Hamilton County Sheriff's Office investigates.

The call came in around 6:30 AM as a "burglary in progress." Crime scene tape has been seen across two driveways in the neighborhood.

We currently have a crew on scene.
