Search For Suspect After Shooting

Knoxville (WVLT) - Knoxville Police need your help finding a suspect in a late-evening shooting.

Authorities were called to the Sunset Rill Apartments on Carta Road for a shooting just before six Monday evening.

They found the victim at a Kwik Pantry nearby, saying he had been shot twice in the stomach.

Police tell us they believe the man does not know the man who shot him.

"No, I don't think it was a random act of violence. As I said before, the individual that was shot was going to the apartment to meet someone, and it may, in fact, be related to this visit to the apartment. We're just not sure at this time," Sgt. Brian Evans said.

If you have any information on this shooting, you're asked to call the Knoxville Police Crime Hotline at 215-7212.
