MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - The body of the man who shot two TACT officers was found in bathtub of a burned house, which he barricaded himself in for hours Tuesday.
A standoff situation started when officers arrived at the house at 1383 Worthington Street with an arrest warrant early in the afternoon for Aaron Dumas, 32, who was wanted for the attempted murder of his ex-girlfriend and her brother.
When police attempted to execute the warrant for Dumas he shot TACT officer Timothy Jackson, 26. Jackson was taken to The MED with a leg injury; he has since been released in stable condition.
Officers returned fire, and Dumas ran back into the house. The TACT Unit attempted to negotiate the suspect's surrender, but the suspect refused.
