A Tennessee man is dead after allegedly intruding a home early Sunday morning.


Robertson County Sheriff's department responded to a call regarding a home intruder at a residence on Hoods Branch Road in Springfield early Sunday morning.

Once deputies arrived they found John Whitehead deceased inside the home, and learned the homeowner had shot him after fearing for his family's safety.

The homeowner stated that Whitehead had come to their home for the first time on Saturday acting strangely claiming to know both the homeowner and his family.

Whitehead then returned to the home on Sunday forcing his way inside, and that's when the homeowner shot him.

After the shooting occurred Whitehead's family claimed that he suffered from mental health issues.

Currently the District Attorney will not be pursuing charges against the homeowner.
