KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Knoxville police say an officer was shot Thursday night in front of a northeast Knoxville shopping center and the suspect is still on the run.

The shooting was reported just after 8:30 p.m. near Target at 5405 Washington Pike.

Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said Thursday night Officer Jay Williams was attempting a traffic stop on a vehicle when the driver fired a round at Williams. The vehicle then stopped and the driver fired several more shots at the officer. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said the driver shot the officer with a handgun and a shotgun.

Williams was hit in the shoulder and taken to UT Medical Center. He has since been released from the hospital.

Officers are looking for Ronnie Lucas Wilson, 31. Police say he is armed and dangerous and is believed to be a member of the Aryan Nation gang.

He was added to the “Top 10 Most Wanted” list by TBI. There is a $2,500 reward for information that can lead up to his arrest.

He has brown hair and brown eyes, is 5-feet-10-inches tall, weighs 185 pounds.

His vehicle, a Chevy Nova, was recovered by police Friday.

If you see Wilson you are advised not to approach him, but to call 911 immediately.
