Hopkinsville Police investigated an alleged robbery at a downtown bar early yesterday morning.
The report says the alleged incident happened around 2:30am outside of Brewsters on South Main Street. 21-year old Ashley Chappell told officers that two women grabbed her, took her to the ground and took her cell phone and cash.
The suspects got away with the property valued at a total of 113 dollars.
Clarksville Police were forced to shoot and kill a man last night after a nearly 3-hour long standoff.
A news release from CPD says officers responded to a Pond Apple Road home around 5:30 after a 911 call was received about a 46-year old man threatening to kill himself and his wife or anyone who tried to enter the home.
Patrol officers arrived and set up a perimeter around the residence to safeguard the neighborhood. The owner of the house was known by police to have a large number of weapons inside the residence.
Negotiators attempted to talk to the man, but were only able to make intermittent contact that eventually ended all together when the suspect refused to communicate. Officers could hear shots being fired inside the home and the man eventually came outside and fired more shots, causing a danger to police and anyone else outdoors.
That’s when police shot the suspect around 8:15pm, killing him on the scene. The name of the man has not been released, pending family notification. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.

A Hopkinsville man was arrested Friday afternoon on wanton endangerment and other charges after allegedly making disturbing threats to a woman and starting a small fire.
Served with a warrant on wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and terroristic threatening charges was 27-year old Donald Ray Merritt of Hopkinsville. The warrant says Merritt texted a woman Friday and said he hoped someone raped and killed her and that someone would shoot her house.
He also allegedly said he hoped her children were scared and the warrant alleges that he broke a window in the woman’s home.
That followed an incident on November 2nd when Merritt allegedly told the woman that he hoped he could shoot her and get away with it and that he hoped her house would burn down. A friend later called the woman to say there was something burning on her apartment porch.
Merritt later allegedly told the woman he was sorry about the incident and police were not called until several days later. He remains in the Christian County Jail on $6,400 bond.
