TBI spokeswoman Susan Niland said a Spring Hill police officer was dispatched after a domestic disturbance call was made.

She said Christopher Blake Tucker came out of the home when the officer arrived. The two had an exchange that resulted in the officer firing at Tucker.

He was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

TBI officials have confirmed to News 2 that two knives were recovered at the scene outside of the home where the shooting took place.

News 2 spoke with Tucker’s mother Friday and she said the domestic dispute was between her and her son, who had a weapon.

She told News 2 he has two children that she’s caring for now.
