Anthony Thompson Jr. was fatally shot by police during a confrontation with four Knox Police Department officers at Austin-East Magnet High School last week.
Knox County District Attorney General Charme Allen released bodycam footage of the shooting that also injured SRO Adam Willson in a restroom.
Jonathon Clabough was named as the officer who fired the fatal shots. He won’t face charges because the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) ruled he acted in self-defense and in the defense of the other officers.
Clabough responded to the school with Officer Brian Baldwin and Lt. Stanley Cash after the mother of Thompson’s girlfriend filed a domestic violence complaint against him, WBIR-TV reports.
It was further reported the mother and daughter said Thompson physically injured her earlier in the day at school, and it wasn’t the first time.
They intended to arrest Thompson on a domestic violence complaint.
