UPDATE: The Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office is releasing more information about the events that led to a murder-suicide in Rossville on Tuesday.

It happened at a home on Clara Lee Drive shortly before 5:00 p.m.

According to the incident report, deputies were called to the home over a domestic dispute. Deputies were told that the offender, 51-year-old David Bryan White, was possibly armed and violating a temporary protective order (TPO).

The report says officers arrived at the scene to find White standing in the driveway and the victim, 51-year-old Kathleen Kell, laying on the ground as White fired several gunshots towards her.

The report says Bryant turned his attention to an officer who was approaching the scene in his patrol car. The report says the officer got out of his vehicle to take cover and “obtain a position of tactical advantage” but could no longer see White after doing so.

The report says other officers arrived at the scene to find White and Kell deceased in the driveway.

The sheriff’s office says the couple had a history of domestic issues with three court orders of protection being issued since September of 2018.

Records show the most recent TPO was issued on August 27, 2019. Warrants for Terroristic Threats, and Criminal Damage to Property 2nd Degree were issued against White on the same day.

Records show White's last arrest was on September 8 and he bonded out jail.

“This is the cycle of Family Violence that a number of families in our community go through that we need to continue to bring awareness to and offer assistance every chance we get. No one ever really knows what the victim goes through daily. It won’t bring this mother, sister, daughter back, but this is an issue that needs constant discussion, awareness, and action. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family,” Sheriff Gary Sisk said.

A GBI spokesperson says agents are assisting with the investigation of this incident.
