WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A woman was injured in an officer-involved shooting at a White House motel Friday night.

Officers were called to the Motel 6 on Chester Drive around 10 p.m.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reported officers received a call from the motel indicating a woman and her wife were in a domestic altercation.

As an officer responded to the motel, they saw 34-year-old Samantha Rediker with a handgun and called in more officers as backup.

When a second officer arrived, the two officers approached the room and Rediker came outside. She pointed the weapon at one of the officers twice, according to the TBI.

The TBI reported the officers commanded Rediker to drop the gun, but she did not comply.

Both officers fired their weapons at Rediker, striking her at least once. She was transported to TriStar Skyline Medical Center where her condition is unknown.

Neither of the officers were injured in the incident.

The shooting remains under investigation by the TBI.

Per TBI policy, the agency will not identify the officers involved in this incident and will instead refer questions of that nature to their department.
