On 01/26/2018, at 1:21pm a resident of Forest Avenue in Shelbyville, Tennessee returned home to find his home had been ransacked. As the homeowner was in the process of assessing the situation he was met face to face with Jesse Caldwell. Caldwell pointed a firearm at the resident and demanded the homeowner turn over his car keys and other possessions. A scuffle ensued inside the residence and Caldwell ultimately fled on foot.
