WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. — The man killed by authorities overnight in Williamson County has been identified by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation as 50-year-old Jeffory Hughes.

It all started when officers with the Fairview Police Department responded to a disturbance at a home on Hill Hughes Road around 1 a.m. Tuesday. Hughes reportedly came outside and confronted the officers armed with a gun.

After repeated attempts to get him to drop the weapon, an officer used a taser on the suspect, but it didn’t work. That’s when Hughes allegedly drew his own weapon and the other officer opened fire.

One neighbor reported hearing four shots at 1:19 a.m., WTVF reported.

The officers were not hurt.

The names of the officers have not been released.
