KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Knoxville police say ballistics tests show a gun being held by a murder suspect when police shot him to death was the one used to kill a restaurant patron earlier.
Officers shot David Rudd on Sunday night after Rudd refused orders to drop the gun. He died a short time later at a hospital.
Police say Rudd, who had a history of mental illness and police arrests, had argued with an assistant manager at a Hooters restaurant about his bill early Saturday, then went outside and fired into the restaurant.
The shots killed 35-year-old Stacey Sherman of Applegate, Mich., and wounded the assistant manager, Kris Key.
