McMINNVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An 87-year-old man reportedly shot his caregiver Wednesday night before shooting and killing himself.
It happened at a home on Center Street where authorities say the 52-year-old caregiver suffered injuries to her head and back.
She was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The alleged shooter, identified as Gerald Medley, barricaded himself inside the home and told authorities that he would not surrender.
Medley ultimately died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.
A motive for the shooting was not immediately determined. The investigation is ongoing.
