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

    What is the problem with guns these days. Why is it so easy to obtain a weapon? Why is all the police on the east side of the town and people in the area is shooting each other every where else other then the east side. Today I was driving in the Longsdale area made a wrong turn and ended up on a street where it appeared people was buying drugs in the street. The funny thing was there was a police car dead smack behind me when I turned on this street, it appeared that the police car increased the speed to pass by the drug infested area. Why is this was they going to find the shooting of the person in the Longsdale area a few days before? No, since this kid turn his self in.This area is so out of touch with their communities it is unreal. It is not a white or black thing it is a class system. I am not affected by this since my home is secured and blessings have been bestowed on my family. However, where is the time of people looking after each other and not shooting each other. Just sad.
