[TN] Memphis Officer Kyle kicked in Officer Watson's door - and was killed



My condolences and prayers to all those involved and affected by this.
NObody wants this to happen. I'd MUCH rather have an empty blog!

EXCERPTS FROM LINKS BELOW:

...A domestic dispute between two off-duty police officers who had been romantically involved left one dead and the other injured... Both were patrol officers at the same precinct... Shular said [Jeremy] Kyle and [Teresita] Watson, who had lived together in the home on Breezy Gate Drive until their recent breakup, had been involved in other disturbances at the house. On April 20, police responded... but neither was arrested. Also, last New Year's Eve, deputies were called to the house... No arrests were made in that incident, either... Domestic violence was also cited in the death last year of another Memphis police officer, Tony M. Hayes... [killed by Deputy jailer Monique Nicole Johnson]

  2. One Officer Dead, Another Injured In Domestic Shooting

    Memphis police find themselves swamped trying to solve what seems like soaring violence in the Bluff City. But this latest deadly shooting is personal, very personal - involving two of their own. One police officer is dead, another officer injured and a third person tramautized. The shooting happened around 8 Sunday morning at the corner of Breezy Gate and Gallop in unincorporated Shelby county. Officer Jeremy Kyle was shot to death after police say he broke into his ex-girlfriend's home then pointed a gun at her and the man with her. Investigators say shots were fired and when the bullets stopped flying, Kyle was dead; his ex-girlfriend, Officer Teresita Watson shot in the stomach. This is a joint investigation by Memphis police and Shelby County Sheriff's deputies... Steve Shular with the Shelby Co. Sheriff's Office says, "They had had an ongoing dispute back and forth. They had been boyfriend and girlfriend. They used to reside together in this house but the man no longer lived here. The other man that was in the house was an acquaintance of this young woman"... Investigators say officer Kyle kicked in the back door. Armed with his personal gun he bought from the police department, Kyle aimed at his old girlfriend and her male friend. Its believed Watson tried to wrestle the gun out of her ex's hands. In the struggle, 22-year-old Davis, fired his own gun, hitting Watson in the stomach and killing her ex-boyfriend in a hallway outside the bedroom. Investigators now believe Officer Kyle never fired a shot. Watson and Kyle were together for at least five years. Mitch Redick is a relative to Officer Kyle and says, "This is his baby momma house. I really don't know what happened but they've been having trouble for a while." Her three children sleeping upstairs weren't injured. They're three, five and nine years old... TWICE BEFORE, SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES WERE CALLED TO WATSON'S HOUSE: ONCE IN DECEMBER AND AGAIN THIS PAST APRIL. THERE WERE NO CHARGES OR VIOLENCE DURING THOSE CALLS. This time, the Sheriff's office says its' also likely charges will not be filed.

    ...After four years on the force, Officer Teresita Watson's personnel file shows an almost spotless history. It lists one minor accident involving her police cruiser last year with no disciplinary action. However, her ex-boyfriend, Officer Jeremy Kyle's three year history with the department is dotted with oral and written reprimands, even a three day suspension... Neither officer's personnel record made any mention of two past domestic incidents in which Sheriff's deputies were called to the house the couple once shared in East Shelby County. Officer Kyle moved out of the house on Breezy Gate in January. Authorities say he returned Sunday morning with a gun threatening Officer Watson and another man in the home at the time, Justin Davis... Funeral arrangements for Officer Kyle are still pending.
