HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Hendersonville Police worked an active barricade situation with an armed person on Candle Wood Drive on Tuesday morning.

The man involved in the standoff has been identified as 29-year-old Tyler Gardner. Murfreesboro Police said Gardner apparently went to his parents home in Hendersonville after a shooting at a Murfreesboro apartment that left his ex-girlfriend, 30-year-old Eva Silver, dead.

The police department said they received a call at 10:45 a.m. at a home in the 100 block of Candlewood Drive. A member of Silver’s family found her dead inside the apartment around 11 a.m.
