Shriver moved to more secure facility

LINCOLN COUNTY, TN (WAFF) -

Former Army Private Joseph Scott Shriver has been moved to a more secure facility.

Shriver was arrested for numerous charges, including the attempted murder of two law enforcement officers.

According to Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, Shriver had been incarcerated in the Lincoln County Jail but, given the circumstances surrounding the case, it was decided he would be better housed outside of the jurisdiction where the crimes were committed.

According to the Tennessee Department of Correction, Shriver was transported to Riverbend Maximum Security Institution, where they keep their death row inmates, around 5 p.m. Tuesday night.

He is currently under "safe keeper" status, which is when a person on trial is held for safety or security reasons in a prison. He is in the segregation section in an 8x8 cell, which is to say he's in solitary confinement.

Shriver is in a cell by himself for 23 hours a day and is closely monitored, but he is not currently under "suicide watch."

He was arraigned Tuesday night and appointed an attorney.

WAFF 48 News will inform you when a court date is set.
