East Knoxville Shooting

Knoxville (WVLT) -- A young man is in stable condition this evening after being shot in one of his arms.

Justin Mack, 25, has been at UT Medical Center since early this morning after shots rang out on Sunset Avenue in East Knoxville.

Police believe the shooting may be connected to a drug deal that was going down nearby.

While investigating Mack's shooting, they arrested Ryan Keith Udovich after a check on his name revealed he was wanted on a warrant.

Police haven't said whether he's tied to the shooting, or to the alleged drug deal.

    Drugs and dealers seem to be taking over our community. We need to put a stop to it even it means getting rid of the "little boys" involved.
