No forced entry was made into the home and a suspect is listed on the report.

A deputy sheriff in a nearby Tennessee county shot and killed an alleged burglar Monday night after the man allegedly approached him with a knife.
The Ashland City Times reports the deputy was responding to a burglary at the L&P Body Shop near the Ashland City Post Office on Vine Street shortly after 9pm along with Ashland City Police Officer William Castleman.
While the officers were searching the business, the deputy came face to face with one of the suspects, who was carrying a knife. That’s when the deputy shot the suspect, who would die later in the night from his injuries.
The names of the deputy and suspect have not been released and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.
