Police Officer Killed, Another Wounded in Memphis Domestic Dispute

MEMPHIS, TN - A Memphis police officer was shot to death and another officer was wounded in a domestic dispute.

Shelby County deputies responded yesterday morning to a call of a shooting at a female police officer's home east of Memphis.

Police say 27-year-old police officer Jeremy Kyle kicked down the door of the home of his ex-girlfriend, police officer Teresita Watson, also 27.

Watson told detectives Kyle pointed a gun at her and another man who was with her, Justin Davis.

Davis shot Kyle in the chest and he died on the scene.

The female officer was wounded when a bullet grazed her stomach during a struggle to disarm Kyle.  She was treated and released from the hospital yesterday.

According to police, the two officers had a relationship that had recently ended.

It wasn't the first time that police were called to the home.

In April, deputies responded after the people got into an argument.  No one was arrested or cited in that incident.

No charges have been filed against Davis for the shooting.
