MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- A man is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Rutherford County.

Deputies were called to the 200 block of Breeze Drive for a domestic incident with possible hostages just after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office. Two hostages escaped, but a third stayed inside due to medical issues.

Negotiators responded and talked to the subject for about an hour before he came out with a gun and pointed it in the direction of law enforcement. Deputies fired their weapons and killed the man.

The victim is identified as 43-year-old Allon Jones.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.
