TBI: Harriman officers shoot, kill woman in her home


Officers shot and killed a burglary suspect inside her Harriman home Tuesday afternoon, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The incident stemmed from a burglary call at a storage unit earlier that day. Officers said Miranda Michelle Guy, 28, was spotted driving a suspicious car and fled from officers. She then drove to her home, ran inside, grabbed a gun, and pointed it at officers, according to authorities. That is when officers said they shot Guy.

Harriman Police Chief Randy Heidle said the officers inside the home included a Roane County deputy and a Harriman police officer.

Crews took Guy to Roane County Medical Center in Harriman where doctors pronounced her dead.

The TBI also confirmed that Guy had a criminal history, which included assault, vandalism, probation violations, among other charges.

After the officer-involved shooting, Chief Heidle said he contacted the District Attorney's Office.

"The first thing I do in a case like this, when an officer's involved, I actually call the District Attorney General's office, and they went ahead and got TBI involved," Chief Heidle said.

TBI is now investigating the shooting. At this time, the agency said it isn't releasing how many shots hit Guy or who shot first. TBI has also not released the names of the deputy and officer involved in the shooting; both were not hurt.

Guy's father, Paul Edwards, said his daughter suffered from a neurological disease that damages muscles and bones. Her sister-in-law said she walked with a limp.

Until they receive Guy's autopsy results, her family is waiting to speak publicly.
