Posted: Updated:
GRUNDY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

UPDATE: Channel 3 as learned the identity of the deputy who fired a shot that may have killed a woman in Grundy County.

Our media partners in Nashville, WSMV, said Deputy Mike Holmes fired a shot during a high-speed chase on December 23rd.

The shooting happened during an attempted traffic stop. Investigators said Jacky Bean pointed a gun at the deputy, and that's when Holmes returned fire.

Shelby Comer was killed by a gunshot wound, but it's unclear if Holmes was the one who killed her.

There are also questions about how much law enforcement training Deputy Holmes received in the past. 

He works as a part-time deputy, meaning he is not required to be certified by the Tennessee Peace Officer Standards and Training, or POST Commission.


PREVIOUS UPDATE: Channel 3 has learned that the woman found dead in a car following an officer-involved shooting over the weekend in Grundy County suffered a gunshot wound.

District Attorney Mike Taylor says the TBI told him that the wound was found on 20-year-old Shelby Comer during an autopsy.

Taylor says he is waiting for the Medical Examiner's report, which will list Comer's official cause of death.
