KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Tennessee say a man listed in a database as an Aryan Nations gang member shot an officer and is on the run.
Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch tells news outlets the man opened fire on Officer David Williams with a shotgun Thursday night as Williams attempted to stop him for speeding. Williams suffered a wound to his shoulder. The suspect is identified as 31-year-old Ronnie Lucas Williams.
Rausch said the officer is not believed to have fired his weapon.
