Report: Shooting In North Knoxville

Knoxville (WVLT) -- A North Knoxville shooting victim is now at UT Medical Center, after being dropped off at Fort Sanders Medical.

Police don't know much right now.

What we do know is that they have put yellow crime scene tape around a car parked at Fort Sanders.

We believe it is the car that transported the victim to the hospital.

Right now police identification units are processing the car for evidence.

We do not know where the shooting happened, but there are unconfirmed reports that a second victim is at St. Mary's Hospital.

No word on the condition of the victim or victims.

The one that was brought to Fort Sanders was transported by ambulance to UT Medical, the trauma center for East Tennessee.

We have a crew on the scene and will bring you new details as they come in on Volunteer TV News at 5:30 and 6 and VolunteerTV.com
