    Mark Eberly (57) killed by Cumberland County Tennessee police, Plus Eberly's former Michigan Home under investigation over human remains

    A man who has Trenton ties is dead after he allegedly opened fire Saturday on a Tennessee police deputy who saw him pulled to the side of the road and stopped to check on his welfare.

    Sgt. Gary Howard, Cumberland County Tennessee police information officer, said Monday that it is not clear if 57-year-old Mark Alan Eberly, who has Facebook pages listing him as being from Trenton, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound or if the fatal shot was from the officer?s return gunfire.

    Howard said Eberly was in the 8000 block of Chestnut Hill Road at just after 7 p.m. when Deputy Tim Tutor approached him and was suddenly shot in the upper right side of his chest area.

    Police said Eberly used a handgun.

    The bullet struck the deputy?s bulletproof vest which, according to Howard, probably saved his life.

    Tutor was airlifted to a hospital from the scene.

    ?He didn?t have time to react,? Howard said. ?He did return fire and I?m assuming some of those bullets struck him. I just spoke with him. He?s a little sore, but he will make a full recovery.?

    Police said Eberly was attempting to leave the scene when the officer fired his weapon, hitting the man and the vehicle.

    Howard said he does not know how many bullet wounds Eberly had.

    According to police, Eberly recently was arrested on June 19 for driving on a revoked license and resisting arrest.

    He posted bond and was released.

    In that police report, Eberly was listed as currently being homeless, but Howard said he noted the Trenton reference on his social media information. Eberly also allegedly told police he was born in Wyandotte.

    It appears Eberly had three social media accounts. In them, said he is a graduate of Trenton High School, studied criminal justice online with Kaplan University and also studied culinary arts.

    One of his profile accounts also said he was a former marine.

    Howard said the arrest might have played a part in his decision to shoot Tutor.

    Cumberland County Sheriff?s officers and Crossville Police Special Weapons and Tactics Team and Crisis Negotiations were sent to the location.

    The area was locked down and fire personnel were on standby near the scene.

    Crisis negotiators made numerous attempts to make contact with Eberly, asking him to tap his brakes.

    After no success, S.W.A.T. deployed chemical weapons and advanced on the vehicle to take Eberly into custody.

    At that point it was discovered that he was dead.

    Howard, who has been with the department for more than 25 years, said it?s been about eight years since there has been an officer-involved shooting like this in the town of about 60,000 residents.

    ?Things like this don?t happen here too often,? he said.

    Eberly describes himself as "a wanderer on the face of this earth" on one of his profile pages and for the intro on another page he wrote, "It's all in God's hands."

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is handling the shooting

    Now Mark Eberly's house is under investigation for a skull

    TRENTON (WXYZ) ? A human skull was discovered in a fire pit of a home in Trenton by new homeowners on Monday. The home was previously owned by Mark Eberly, who was killed after opening fire on officers in Tennessee in June, according to a report in the New Herald.

    The new homeowners recently closed on the home. When they saw the skull in the home's large fire pit, they immediately contacted police.

    A Michigan State Police crime lab is on the scene, according to Trenton Police Chief Steve Voss.

    Right now, investigators say the remains of only one person have been found, and they hope no others are found as the investigation continues. The new homeowners are cooperating with the investigation.

    TRENTON, Mich. (WXYZ) — The new owners of a home on Wilson in Trenton found a skull inside a backyard fire pit and called police. Now two investigations are underway in Michigan and Tennessee.

    The focus is on 57-year-old Mark Eberly who lived in the house for decades with his parents and then for three years after they passed away. He was their only child and had a woman living with him.

    Trenton Public Safety Director Steve Voss tells 7 Action News the skull was fire damaged but intact and they may be able to make an identity from dental records. They are focused on the woman who lived in the house.

    Eberly sold the house, and last month went to Tennessee where he got into two altercations with police. After being booked for resisting arrest and his mugshot taken, he later got into a shootout with police on June 27. He drove off and was found dead from either police gunshots or a self-inflicted gunshot.

    Police also say he was seen there at a campsite with a woman. Is that a different woman?

    Police say the woman who was living in Trenton has no immediate family.

    The family who bought the house had renovations done before they moved in and nothing suspicious was found.
