CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – The Clarksville Police Department responded to an aggravated domestic assault in progress in the area of Hedgewood Road around 11:20 a.m., according to CPD spokesman Scott Beaubien.
The suspect, having an emotional disturbance, fled the area and was located on Timberdale Drive a short time later, Beaubien said. He said that, when officers attempted to negotiate with the suspect, they were unable to successfully deescalate the situation and obtain mental health services.
The suspect reportedly took his own life, according to Beaubien. No officers were injured, and the area will be closed off until the scene can be processed and cleared.
