The TBI is investigating a shooting of a woman by two White House police officers on Friday night at the Motel 6 on Hester Drive, according to th Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Shortly before 10 p.m. on Friday, June 16, White House Police responded to a domestic altercation between two married women at the motel, according to a TBI release.

On his approach to the motel room, a White House police officer saw a female, identified as Samantha Redicker, 34, with a handgun and called for backup.

When a second officer arrived, the two approached the room, after which Redicker came out of the room and pointed the weapon at one of the officers at least two times, according to the TBI.

The officers gave multiple commands for Redicker to drop the gun, but she did not comply, they said.

TBI officials say the situation further escalated and resulted in both officers firing their weapons, striking Redicker, who was injured and subsequently transported to Skyline Medical Center for treatment.

Neither of the law enforcement officers was injured during the incident.

The TBI currently has agents gathering relevant information, interviews and evidence in connection to this active and ongoing case.

In turn, investigative findings will be submitted to the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.

The TBI acts as 'fact-finders' in its cases. The decision as to whether the actions of the officers were justified rests solely with the District Attorney General.

Per TBI policy, the agency will not identify the officers involved in this incident and will instead refer questions of that nature to their department.
