UPDATE: Woman fatally shot trying to run over cop identified, 2 others hurt in chase
UPDATE: At the request of 11th District Attorney General Neal Pinkston, TBI Agents are investigating the circumstances surrounding an officer-involved shooting early Tuesday morning.
Preliminary information indicates the incident occurred after midnight Tuesday when an officer from the Red Bank Police Department attempted to pull over a vehicle that failed to yield.
A chase then started and law enforcement officers with both the Soddy-Daisy Police Department and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office joined in the pursuit. The vehicle fled from officers into a private drive on Burchard Road in Soddy-Daisy. Officers followed the suspects into the woods. While attempting to arrest them, the suspects' vehicle hit a Red Bank officer. That officer fired his weapon, hitting the female driver, identified as Donna Lynn Allen, and a male passenger.
Both suspects were taken to Erlanger Medical Center where the female driver died from her injuries. The male subject is currently in critical condition. The Red Bank officer was also treated for his injury and has been released from the hospital.
Channel 3 has confirmed with the Red Bank Police Department that the officer is on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
