Sent on 7/14/2017 7:42:36 AM

Last night, just before midnight, deputies responded to the 8800 block of South Alice Vail Lane for a report of an unknown problem. The person calling 9-1-1 was 56-year-old Brenda Doucette. She reported her brother, 55-year-old Chancy Chamblee, had a gun and broke into the residence through a window. When deputies arrived, they made contact with Mr. Chamblee who was still inside the home. During that initial contact a deputy fired at Mr. Chamblee, fatally wounding him. Deputies found Ms. Doucette inside the home with signs of trauma. She was pronounced dead on scene. The Homicide Unit responded and took over the investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.
