The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is leading the probe into the fatal shooting of a trespasser Sunday on property in the Mayland community of Cumberland County, a news release states.

Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Human was dispatched by the E911 Center on a report of a trespasser, according to a release from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. An altercation occurred as the deputy was attempting to arrest David Lee Fish II, 41, of Cumberland County, authorities said. The deputy fired his service weapon and fatally injured Fish.

Deputy Human was taken to Cumberland Medical Center, treated for injuries and released.

He is on administrative leave with pay, which is standard procedure in an officer-involved shooting, pending the results of the investigation, the release states.
