NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Nashville police say that a man who was fatally shot by an officer on Thursday had shown signs of paranoia for months and thought people in his neighborhood were agents who were spying on him.
The victim has been identified as 53-year-old John D. Acree. Police say he died after exchanging gunfire with an officer at his home.
Four police officers went to Acree's home to arrest him for failing to appear in court on an aggravated burglary charge.
Police say he was charged after a female neighbor said Acree had entered her home just as she was getting out of the shower. Police say the neighbor reported that he accused her of conducting surveillance on him and said he would be monitoring her.
