Tuesday Shooting Still Under Investigation
The Kingsport Police Department is receiving some heat from Tuesday’s shooting on Watauga Street involving a patrol officer. KPD has not released any information regarding the type of weapon the suspect was holding during the stand-off. The parents of Jeffrey Caldwell maintain their son was not holding a weapon, but actually had a roofing shingle. Interim Chief of Police David Quillen said in a press release that Caldwell “created this situation and the officers on scene took the necessary actions based on the circumstances, the knowledge they had, their training, proper police procedure, and department protocol. They exhibited an enormous level of patience and restraint, with their final actions which ultimately resolved the incident, being an absolutely last resort.” Quillen added the department strives to be transparent as possible, but can’t release any more information about the incident because of the ongoing investigation.
