(WBIR-MARYVILLE) A man who was shot after confronting a police officer with a BB gun now faces charges.

Fuller walked out to the street in an attempt to calm the man, later identified as Jason Halfacre, 40, who was in a relationship with the woman and lived at the home.

As Halfacre kept advancing with the weapon, which TBI said was indistinguishable from a firearm, Fuller fired once, hitting Halfacre. He was taken to UT Medical Center for treatment.

 

The TBI said that Halfacre has now been indicted on an aggravated assault charge. He is being held in the Blount County jail.
