URGENT: Suspected Gunman Ronnie Wilson Wanted For Shooting Cop

Ronnie Wilson is wanted for shooting a Knoxville police officer on Thursday night.

Knoxville, TN – A Knoxville police officer was shot on Washington Pike in front of Target Thursday night, according to Knoxville PD, and the suspect has been identified as Ronnie Lucas Wilson.

Ronnie Wilson, 31, escaped after the shooting of the Knoxville officer during a traffic stop and is still on the run.

Wilson has a Tazewell Pike address and may be driving a black mid 70’s Chevrolet Nova with a red strip on the hood.

He’s also apparently an Aryan Nations gang member and covered in white supremacist tattoos.

He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. If spotted, call 911 immediately.

The officer has been transported to hospital and their condition still has not been released. UPDATE: Travis Dorman reports that the officer was identified as Officer Jay William. He is listed in stable condition.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the officer and the other officers hunting the gunman.
