Hero Murdered: Tennessee Officer Shot in Head Point-Blank
Hero Murdered: Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier Shot in Head Point-Blank
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier was fatally shot this afternoon during an undercover drug buy. Our sources tell us that he was shot in the head at point-blank range.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released this statement on the circumstances:
“Preliminary information indicates Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier was one of several agents working alongside the Metro Narcotics Unit during a controlled buy this afternoon around 2:00 in a vehicle in the area of Brianfield Cove. During the exchange, a subject in the backseat of the car, whom the Agent met for the purposes of purchasing illicit drugs, produced a firearm in an attempt to rob the Agent and an informant sitting in the front seat. During the exchange, the subject fired once, striking Agent Frazier, who subsequently died at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.”
The subject was apprehended by law enforcement officers a short distance away in the area of Tinker Hill Cove. He is currently in law enforcement custody with charges pending.”
Frazier, 35, joined TBI in February 2016, following a career as a police officer with the Millington Police Department. In that capacity, he also served on a DEA Task Force.
“Agent Frazier was exactly what we look for in a TBI Agent: hard-working, enthusiastic, and dedicated to making Tennessee a better place to live,” said TBI Director Mark Gwyn. “We are deeply saddened by his death and will work aggressively to investigate this case to its fullest. His commitment to our agency and public service will not be forgotten.”
This tragic event highlights the terrible acts that people are capable of. Law enforcement officers are the heroes who’s duty it is to remove these people from the community, and Agent Frazier was murdered while carrying out that duty.
Agent De’Greaun Frazier, your life mattered.
