Neighbors interviewed after the officer-involved shooting incident on Clarksville Pike in Bordeaux, Tennessee, said that the officer didn't have any good options when a man charged at him with butcher knives during a traffic stop. The incident left the suspect dead in the Nashville suburb.

This is the third shooting occurring in the exact same area in the month of April 2021. It is also the third officer-involved shooting happening in the Nashville area since the beginning of March, including the case of 33-year-old Melissa Wooden who allegedly charged police while armed with an axe and a baseball bat, according to local outlet WKRN.

This incident also comes right on the heels of another officer involved shooting in Columbus Ohio, where Ma'Khia Bryan was shot and killed by police as he was attacking another girl with a knife.

"I have a new animal that I’ve been sitting out here with and just been chilling on the porch. But for some reason, I didn’t come out last night and I’m glad I didn’t. That could have easily been a stray bullet coming this way and I wouldn’t have known how to get out of the way," said an anonymous neighbor.

Jamie Ewbank, one of the people living on the same block where this latest incident occurred commented, "I commend any officers doing their job and protecting and serving, but at the same time also thinking before they’re pulling the trigger."

Another homeowner who has asked to stay anonymous said, "[The officer] did not have a winning solution. I don’t know what [the man who wound up being fatally shot]'s intent was. He was running around, he tried to get in the police car, he did several things that just doesn’t make sense. And you could hear, it was so passionate that the driver was saying man, what are you doing, what are you doing? And like he knew what the outcome was going to be."
