Man dies after being shot by police, falling from overpass

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a man on a roadway overpass has fallen and died after being shot by an officer.
    
Local media report 22-year-old Steven Dodd was pronounced dead at a hospital early Wednesday after the shooting in Hendersonville.
    
TBI spokesman Josh DeVine says officers responded to the scene around 11 p.m. Tuesday after getting calls reporting a man standing on the outside ledge of the bridge over a road. He said police tried to negotiate with the man, but the conversation escalated and Dodd pulled out a gun at which time an officer shot him in the leg. Dodd then fell to the roadway below.
    
Devine says the TBI is collecting evidence and trying to determine exactly what happened.
    
Further information wasn’t immediately available.
