Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece said four people were being questioned in the incident that reportedly started as an argument between a father and daughter.

Shots were fired at a home on McElyea Road, which prompted a response by sheriff’s deputies. Reece said drugs and a car were seized in the incident. A child in the home was also placed with Child Protective Services.

In a news release issued by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office around 3:30 p.m. Thursday, four people — James Edward Osborne, Brad Price, Jessica Falin and Joshua Carrilo — have been charged.

Carrilo was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the sheriff’s office, the investigation is ongoing and other charges are pending.

In a separate incident, a deputy crashed en route to the call. That crash was being investigated by Tennessee Highway Patrol.
