The Major Crimes Unit of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office has determined that the shooter in the incident that occurred around midnight Sunday on Old Callahan Road is Randy Shelton.  The 32 year old man apparently shot himself and was found in a pond in front of 2535 Old Callahan Road.  His body has been taken to the Regional Forensic Center for examination and to determine the cause of death.  The Dive Team also recovered a handgun and rifle from the pond that is believed to have been used in the shooting.  

Witnesses told detectives that the shooting was a result of argument that happened earlier in the evening between Shelton and his friends and the occupants of the house.  The two people shot were treated and released from U.T. Medical Center today.
