Knoxville (WVLT) - Knoxville Police hope to track down a man they believe shot another man in the legs this afternoon.

The focus of the investigation centered for several hours on a northwest Knoxville home.

Police say just before noon, 54-year-old Charles Young claims he was walking down Gap Road when he got into a confrontation with the suspect and was then shot.

KPD sent in a special operations team to the scene, but hours later determined the suspect was not at the home.

The victim, Charles Young is in stable condition at UT Medical Center.
