Update on Monday night shooting on James Agee Street  
On Monday, February 3 at 6:54 p.m., Knoxville Police Department officers responded to an Attempted Aggravated Burglary at the 100 block of James Agee Street. The initial call stated that the victim had fired shots at two attempted burglars, who then fled north towards Grand Avenue. 

Officers arrived on scene and spoke to the victim, a 21-year-old male, who stated that two male subjects had attempted to force entry through the back door of the residence. The victim stated that he then fired at least two shots at the suspects in self-defense.  

Around that same time, patrol officers responded to the Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, where a 27-year-old male matching the description of one of the suspects had arrived with at least two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. He was transferred to the UT Medical Center for treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. 

It is unknown at this time if the two incidents are connected.  

Investigators with the Violent Crimes Unit responded to the Fort Sanders hospital as well as the residence on James Agee Street to begin its investigation. There is no further information at this time. 

For those interested, the report number is 20-004707.
