KINGSTON - - After ex-cop Jeremy Alex Gambrell allegedly shot his ex-wife Jenny Gambrell several times Saturday afternoon, he held her hand, apologized to her and told her that he loved her, according to an arrest warrant.
Gambrell, 41, a former Lenoir City police officer who also previously was a TVA police officer, also allegedly shot at a man, a second aggravated assault warrant indicates.
That victim, Caryville resident Brice R. Dick, wasnít struck by gunfire as he ran away, court records state. Authorities said Dick is Jenny Gambrellís boyfriend.
Alex Gambrellís father, David Gambrell, was at the residence and called 911. David Gambrell described the shooting scene to authorities, warrants indicate. He said he heard gunshots and then saw his former daughter-in-law on the ground, his son next to her, holding her hand.
During a tense four-hour standoff that ensued at Jenny Gambrellís residence on Bridges Drive in the Harriman area before he surrendered, Alex Gambrell told police he took 20 adderalls.
That prescription medication is a central nervous system stimulant.
Alex Gambrell was armed with a Glock .40 caliber handgun when officers arrived, and evidence at the scene indicated it had been fired.
Jenny Gambrell was flown by medical helicopter to University of Tennessee Medical Center Saturday. She was listed in stable condition Sunday, but hospital officials on Monday said there was no information on a patient by that name.
Alex Gambrellís address was listed as Dyllis Road, Harriman on an investigation report. He remained in the Roane County Jail Monday afternoon in lieu of bonds totaling $50,000 on two aggravated assault warrants. He is to appear in Roane County General Sessions Court on May 18.
A warrant indicates a special agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is involved in the probe.
