WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. - Schools in Williamson County in Middle Tennessee are set to be closed Monday because of a manhunt by Williamson County deputies.

The Williamson County Sheriff's Department confirmed that they were searching for one of the schools maintenance workers, 41-year-old Jeff Vaughn, who they said was involved in a domestic dispute with his wife.

WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News recently learned that deputies caught Vaughn around 10 p.m. Sunday night, and he is in custody.

The school closings were a precaution because he had access to the schools.

They said the domestic incident did involve a gun, but no one was seriously hurt.
