KPD Investigates Possible Shooting at The Standard near Campus

Knoxville Police are investigating after reports of a shooting on 17th Street early Saturday. Officers were called to the Standard apartment complex around 3:00 a.m. on reports of gunshots. No victim was located, but officers found blood outside of an apartment and several rounds were found inside.

Investigators reviewed security footage and say there was a large gathering in the apartment and several altercations broke out. They don’t believe anyone was injured in the shooting, but from that the blood was from the fight. At least two people in the apartment had handguns.

So far no suspects have been identified. KPD is continuing the investigation.
