The following is from a press release from August 18, 2022, by Capt. Marty Plunk with the Weakley County Sheriff’s Office and reads:

"On August 14, 2022, there was a shooting incident that took place just outside of the Gleason City Limits. Deputies responded and located a Shane K. Westphal, 28, that was suffering a gunshot wound. Emergency Services responded and Westphal was flown to Skyline Medical in Nashville.

The investigation is still ongoing and the incident appears to have

developed out a domestic situation where Westphal was in an argument someone that used to live in the home. During this argument is when Westphal suffered a gunshot wound.

There is no one else that the Sheriff’s Office is looking for so there is no danger to the public."
