    One person is dead following a domestic violence situation while a "citizen" is being hailed as a hero for shooting the suspect inside a Kingsport dentist office, Sheriff Jeff Cassidy told WCYB.

    "It was a husband and wife. He just came in the front door with the intention of harming his wife," Cassidy said about the incident at the offices of David A. Guy, DDS.

    The sheriff also said that a conceal-carry permit holder "eliminated a threat" by shooting the suspect.

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is assisting Sullivan County with the case.
