Deputy Jason Scott was shot and killed when he arrived at the scene of a domestic disturbance on Palmer Driver, in rural Loudon County at 0830 hours.

He was shot four times as he exited his patrol car by a 16-year-old boy who had been beating his mother with a post. The boy had attacked the mother because she had refused to let him drive to school because he had been drinking the night before.

Another deputy, who arrived at the scene behind Deputy Scott, called for assistance. The suspect then barricaded himself in his house, armed with numerous rifles, and exchanged shots with responding officers. Three other officers received minor wounds from flying debris when they were shot at by the suspect. Deputy Scott and the other initial responding officers were not aware that there were numerous weapons in the home.

Deputy Scott was flown to the University of Tennessee Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a 28-hour standoff.

Deputy Scott had served with the Loudon County Sheriff's Department for 3 years. He is survived by his expectant wife, mother, father, and sister.
