Both the Clarksville Transit Authority and the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System were notified of the blocked routes. As of 2:00pm, negotiators were in contact with the man as officers continued to hold the perimeter.

5:40pm, reports from citizens of additional gunfire at the Commerce Street perimeter are incorrect. What they have been hearing is the deployment of several 40mm tear gas rounds into the residence by the CPD Emergency Services Unit over the last hour.

The only firearm gunshot was fired several hours ago by the suspect when he shot one round into the ground with an AK47 style rifle, possibly by accident. No firearms have been discharged by police at this time.

There are still no known injuries.
