TBI most wanted suspect turns herself in

Nashville (WVLT) - A woman wanted in a Cocke County crime has turned herself into authorities after being added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's top ten most wanted list for less than 12 hours.

Authorities say 23-year-old Tomika Scott turned herself into authorities Tuesday night in Nashville.

Scott faces especially aggravated robbery charges, after an attack on a man in the parking lot at a Newport apartment building in August.

TBI says Scott shot the man in the back, leaving him paralyzed.

She will now be transported back to the Cocke County jail to face charges.
