According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, officers responded to the home after 63-year-old Jack David Hutchinson allegedly punched his daughter-in-law and fired a handgun into the floor.

When officers arrived on scene Hutchinson appeared from a shed and fired shots in their direction, according to the TBI’s press release. Officers returned fire but did not strike Hutchinson. They managed to subdue Hutchinson with a stun gun and subsequently brought him into custody.

He’s under $450,000 bond and is charged with two counts of criminal attempt to commit first degree murder and one count of domestic assault.
