When Deputy Locke was walking toward the home where the officers were interacting with the suspect, they say that Stricklin shot Deputy Locke. Locke was transported to a local hospital for treatment but didn’t survive.

Stricklin ran into the woods nearby but was found a few hours later by troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Stricklin has since been charged with one count of First Degree Murder.
