Shooting One Block and 12 Hours From Another


Knoxville (WVLT) -- Police are investigating a drive by shooting in Northwest Knoxville that happened around 1 PM.

Police say a man was shot in the leg on Stonewall Street and Texas Avenue, one block from a drive by shooting early this morning.

The shots came from an older model blue Oldsmobile, with three men inside.

The victim was taken to UT Medical Center.

Police are still searching for the suspects and a motive, but they say shots being fired in broad daylight is not necessarily unusual...

"It always varies. Things happen from time to time. It all depends on who's looking for who at what particular time," said Lt Ronald Green of the Knoxville Police Department.

Investigators are hoping the victim can tell them who shot him.
