FBI Fatally Shoots Disabled Veteran in Early Morning Raid, Grieving Mother Seeks Answers

A family is desperately searching for answers after FBI agents burst through the door and fatally shot their relative during an early morning raid last week.

The FBI is refusing to explain to a grieving mother the reasons behind their arrival in armored vehicles at 6 AM last Wednesday, which resulted in the death of her son.

According to WBBJ’s report, FBI agents arrived at a residence in Henderson, Tennessee, to deliver an arrest warrant to a man named Theodore Deschler, and it was during this encounter that the situation turned deadly.

A neighbor informed WBBJ that he woke up at 6 AM when he heard a loud bang.

“I was woken up at about six o’clock this morning. I heard a loud bang. Then I heard a couple more. I heard the loudspeakers, ‘Come out with your hands up. We’re the FBI. We’re not going anywhere.’ Before I knew it, I was coming out to see what was going on and watched them bust out their windows,” the neighbor told WBBJ.

Theodore’s family claims he didn’t have any weapons when the agents broke down the door and tossed flashbangs into the house.

“It was a senseless act. You know Teddy was a 100% disabled veteran. He had problems. He had severe PTSD. He had depression but he was getting help for it but this was senseless. He didn’t have a weapon on him. He was just trying to get out of the house because it was filled with tear gas,” Theodore’s mother told WBBJ.

The house was heavily damaged by tear gas, flashbangs, and bullets. Most of the windows were broken.

This shooting incident involving the FBI is currently being investigated, which means the family is currently unaware of the details regarding the raid.

The family did say that they will be looking to file a civil suit against the FBI concerning this incident.
