The 92- year-old female was transported to a local Hospital suffering severe medical issues. The Family Crimes Unit responded to the victim’s residence/Apartment off Cedar Bluff Road to investigate further. Upon arriving at the residence and attempting to speak with the victim’s live-in son, the subject refused to cooperate and barricaded himself in the apartment, refusing to come out or allow officers to enter.
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team and Negotiations Unit responded to the residence, and after negotiations, the subject surrendered with no further incident. AMR transported the subject for evaluation.
The investigation remains active at this hour. We will update with more information as it becomes available.
