A Tennessee deputy fatally shot a man who fired at and wounded a police officer after a traffic stop, authorities said.

The shooting occurred late Sunday after a Selmer Police Department officer stopped a speeding vehicle and a passenger in the vehicle fled on foot after the driver stopped, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

Selmer police and deputies with the McNairy County Sheriff’s Office located the man, later identified as Adam L. Timberlake of Adamsville, hiding in a residential area. According to reports from the scene, Timberlake fired shots at the Selmer officer, injuring him, and a deputy returned fire and struck Timberlake, the bureau said.
