Porn suspect fatally shot in New Market, Tenn.

NEW MARKET, Tenn. — The FBI says an agent was involved in a fatal shooting during an East Tennessee child pornography investigation.

In a news release from the Knoxville office, Special Agent Kelly Kindness said the shooting happened Wednesday in New Market when agents tried to serve an arrest warrant.

Kindness said the subject died from the wounds and the FBI is reviewing the shooting.

The FBI news release did not name the victim or the agent. Federal court documents in the child porn case indicate that suspect Scott Edward Evans of New Market has died. Evans was charged Monday with electronically sending and receiving sexually explicit images of minors.

WATE-TV (http://bit.ly/Xt05fr) reported the road to Evans’ home was blocked for several hours Wednesday and again today as agents investigated.
