The case of a man accused of killing his mother in Alcoa, leading police on a chase in Sevier County and then being shot by officers during a confrontation with Pigeon Forge police has been sent to the grand jury.
Johnathon A. Sellers, 18, will face the grand jury on June 7 to find out if he will be indicted.
The body of his mother Kelly Brackin, 52, was found inside her home on March 1 after Alcoa officers were dispatched to conduct a welfare check.
Later that morning, officers with the Pigeon Forge Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle for DUI. The vehicle, driven by Sellers, failed to stop and led officers on a chase into Gatlinburg before turning and driving back to Pigeon Forge, according to a release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
Sellers eventually got out of his vehicle with a shotgun and three Pigeon Forge officers fired shots, TBI said. Sellers was wounded and transported to an area hospital for treatment.
No officers were hurt.
