A deputy with the Bradley County Sheriff's Office fatally shot the driver of a vehicle after attempting to pull him over in Charleston, Tennessee, late Friday evening.

The incident occurred just before midnight when deputies attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Jerry Raleigh Livingston, 39, according to a Saturday news release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

"He refused to stop and turned onto a gravel road in the 400 block of Water Street in Charleston," the release said. "When Livingston realized the road was blocked, he reportedly placed the vehicle in reverse and accelerated into the front of a Bradley County deputy's patrol vehicle. The deputy fired shots into Livingston's vehicle, striking him. He was pronounced dead at the scene."

No officers were injured during the incident, the release said.

TBI agents are working to determine the series of events that led to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews, the TBI said.

Neither the TBI nor the Bradley County Sheriff's Office identified the officers involved in the incident.
