CLINTON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Anderson Co. Sheriff's Office released the name of the deputy involved in the officer-involved shooting which killed Randall Wilcox on Saturday. Deputy Steven Williams shot Wilcox during a struggle in which the Clinton man tried to take Deputy Williams' gun, according to Sheriff Paul White.
Deputy Williams had pulled Wilcox over when the 30 year-old jumped out of his car and started running, White said. Williams quickly caught up to him and that's when the fight began.
Following the confrontation, Williams was taken to Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge where he was treated and released.
Sheriff White added the initial report has not been completed yet and, at this time, they would not release any more information about the incident.
White said Williams has been a Reserve Deputy since July 2008 and a senior patrol officer since June of this year. He also pointed out that Williams is one of only 6 reserve deputies out of 38 that have received the advanced training needed to qualify to go out on patrol.
