Yesterday afternoon Clarksville Police were called to the home of Todd Hansrote on Apple Pond Road after a 911 call where Hansrote threatened to kill himself and his wife. Clarksville officers responded quickly and set up a perimeter around the house. Police spokesman Jim Knoll said officers were familiar with this home and Hansrote was known to have a large quantity of weapons inside.
A tactical team and a group of negotiators were called to the scene in attempt to make contact with the 46 year old male owner. Negotiators say they were able to briefly establish intermittent communications before hearing several shots ring out from inside the home. According to spokesman Jim Knoll, that’s when Hansrote exited the home and began discharging his firearm presenting an imminent threat to both police and the neighborhood. Hansrote shot outside his home and pronounced dead at the scene around 8:15.
The TBI is continuing to investigate. The officer involved in the shooting as been placed administrative per protocol, according to Jim Knoll.
