NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The man seen on surveillance getting out of Jocques Clemmons’ car moments before he was shot and killed by a Metro police officer has been identified.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told News 2 on Monday they also spoke to the man, whose identity has not been released.

TBI officials say the man was identified by a viewer who saw media coverage and called authorities.

The bureau had previously said it would like to locate and speak with the man “solely for the purpose of understanding his relationship to Clemmons and whether he possesses any information that may assist agents in the ongoing case.”

Further details weren’t released at this time.

Clemmons died at the Cayce Homes in East Nashville on Feb. 10 after he was stopped for a traffic violation.

The entire incident was caught on surveillance cameras, one of which showed another man getting out of Clemmons’ car and walking away right after Clemmons ran from the officer in the other direction.
