Nashville SWAT Responds to Barricaded Suicide of Former Officer

June 06, 2016  | 

An officer with the Metro Nashville Police Department died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound early Sunday morning.

Authorities said negotiators responded to the South Nashville apartment of 31-year-old Officer Jonathan Perez after they received information from a crisis hotline.

According to reports, officials could not make contact with Perez during a barricade, so they made entry.

He was found dead around 9:30 a.m.

Police told News Channel 5 Perez had been decommissioned on March 29 after being charged with misdemeanor stalking. The charges allegedly stemmed from him continuously contacting a co-worker he had previously been dating.

Sadly all of us have issues and sometimes we choose the wrong path to solve these issues, LEOs are no exception.
