Johnson County woman had shot at officers, ambulance, authorities say

Heather Buchanan

MOUNTAIN CITY — The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department has released more information into the suspected murder-suicide that killed 31-year-old Heather Buchanan and her daughter, 6-year-old Alexis Buchanan. A man, Terry Mark Johnson, was also shot in the abdomen and hand. He remains hospitalized and has not yet been interviewed by investigators.

“We are waiting to talk to him and we are waiting on the preliminary results of the autopsy,” Sheriff Mike Reece said Monday. He said the pathologists plan to do an autopsy on the child as quickly as possible.

Reece said the officers responded to 1235 McEwen Road in the Forge Creek Community on Saturday night after a call to 911 reported a man was shot. Reece said Johnson was able to get away from his residence and made it to a neighbor’s residence, where 911 was called.
