Felon in Custody Accused of Trying to Kill Knoxville Woman

A convicted felon is in custody accused of trying to kill a Knoxville woman.

Investigators say 29-year-old Nicholas Boggs was crouched hiding in some bushes outside the Northshore Heights Senior Living Center when he ambushed the woman Tuesday.

The victim says she got a photo of her car from Boggs through Facebook. When she came out of the building to check on the vehicle she says Boggs pointed a gun at her and fired three shots.

The woman was able to get back inside before he began shooting. She heard three loud bangs and told the police bullets struck the doorway. No injuries were reported.

He fled the scene, but was later picked up by police. Investigators say Boggs is a convicted felon. He’s charged with Attempted First-Degree Murder, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and more.
