Man Charged with Deadly Shooting in Midtown

Kingston, Roane County (WVLT) - Prosecutors have charged a man with second degree murder after police say he shot two men, killing one of them.

Police say Stanley Brown shot and killed Tommy Morrell at a home in Midtown Sunday night.

They say he also shot and injured Charles Ward.

He was taken to U.T. Medical Center by Lifestar and he's since been discharged.

A short time later, a state trooper pulled Brown over on I-40 in Cumberland County for a traffic violation.

It was the same time Roane County Dispatchers issued a bulletin for him.

Police say they found the gun used in the shootings in the car.

Investigators say Brown knew the two victims but it's not clear why the shootings occurred.
