The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has identified the suspect in an officer-involved shooting in Oak Ridge.

According to the TBI, the officer got out of his car and was hit by Ramirez. An officer on scene then apparently fired a gun and hit Ramirez. He was taken to a nearby hospital and died.

The officer hit by the car is expected to recover.
