"Shooting Investigation" with pistol, KCSO badge, and crime tape background

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Units were dispatched at 14:52 to a burglary in progress on Dante Road.

The initial investigation led Deputies to a business in the 6700 block of Central Avenue Pike, deputies encountered three suspects, one of which pulled a weapon, a KCSO Deputy fired striking the suspect bearing the weapon, two suspects fled on foot but were apprehended just a short distance away. The suspect that was shot was transported to UTMC with what appeared to be a non life threatening injury.

It is standard protocol for TBI to investigate all officer involved shootings – therefore, any and all additional releases will come from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
