FEB. 24– A Hardin County deputy sheriff responding to a domestic incident was shot at Tuesday, authorities say.
According to General Sessions Court records, Martin Cole Hare, 24, of Savannah, was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and vandalism over $500.
No injuries were reported.
Sheriff Sammy Davidson said today that Deputy Richie Stricklin responded to 140 Mount Zion Cemetery Loop in the Nixon community at 1:26 p.m. after the homeowner, Hare’s mother Marcia Pruitt, called for an officer.
“There was some sort of domestic dispute, but what the mother really wanted was for the officer to get her key back from her son,” Davidson said.
He said when Stricklin arrived he went inside the mobile home to speak with Pruitt. The deputy heard a gunshot outside and behind the residence, and exited through the front door.
