NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of a Gordonsville man, who is charged with the attempted murder of his son-in-law.
At the request of 15th District Attorney General Tom Thompson, on November 25th, TBI Agents responded to Gordonsville to investigate a report of an officer-involved shooting. The investigation revealed that Saturday night, Smith County deputies responded to a shots-fired call on Tribble Lane in Gordonsville.

During the course of the investigation, Agents, working with law enforcement officers with the Smith County Sheriff’s Department and Gordonsville Police Department, developed information that earlier in the evening, Nash had gone to the nearby residence of his son-in-law, and had fired shots at him.
On Sunday, Agents arrested Stacye Lee Nash (DOB 06/21/1962) and charged him with one count of Criminal Attempt to Commit First Degree Murder. He was booked into the Smith County Jail, on a $150,000 bond.
