Suspect Shoots at KPD Officers

Police are looking for a man they say shot at an officer during a chase. KPD says the suspect robbed the Aladdin’s Deli on Central Avenue Tuesday.

Officers saw him drive off in a Silver Mercury Mountaineer. During the chase the suspect fired at least twice at the officer, then got out of the car and ran off on foot.

Police believe he may be in a stolen black pickup. The vehicle is a black 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck bearing TN license plate # 2K42M8. The truck has paint coming off in several areas exposing a red color underneath. The suspect is a white male with short light colored hair. He was last seen wearing a black tank-top, blue jeans, and white shoes.

If you recognize the suspect or have seen the vehicle you are asked to call the Knoxville Police Department’s crime information line at 865-215-7212. Callers can remain anonymous. Anonymous tips can also be submitted through our Facebook page @KnoxvillePD
