One dead, one hospitalized after Sunday morning shooting


One person was killed and another sent to the hospital early Sunday morning in West Knoxville in what appears to be a domestic-related incident, authorities said.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office said a call came in just after midnight about a possible shooting around the 9000 block of Gulf Park Drive. Deputies found two people with gunshot wounds at the residence.

Medical personnel tried to revive one of the individuals, but were unsuccessful, according to a press release.

The other person was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, but their condition is unknown at this time.

Authorities said the name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
