Red Bank police search for suspect in shooting

A woman who suffered a gunshot wound Thursday night was able to drive herself to the Hardee's on McCahill Road in Red Bank and get help.

Red Bank Police Chief Tim Christol said it appears the woman, who was not identified, had been feuding with someone in Chattanooga. Their fight spilled over into Red Bank when the woman took to U.S. Highway 27 and was chased, he said.

He said early indications suggest the woman was shot before the Morrison Springs exit. She drove to the nearest place she could for help. The woman was taken to a Chattanooga hospital for treatment.

The shooting was not a random act of violence, Christol said. The victim knew the suspect, he added.

Red Bank Police officers are working on tracking down the suspect, who also was not identified, he said.

"We have some good leads. We're following it, and we'll do what we can," he said.

Man sought here jailed in Knoxville

Knoxville Police have charged Jabari Reynolds, who has five outstanding warrants for robbery in Hamilton County, with first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of an 18-year-old man Wednesday at a Knoxville apartment.

Police said the victim, Desean Lowe, was shot more than once.

Reynolds, whose Chattanooga address is listed as 2203 Bennett Ave., also faces weapons charges, according to jail reports.

He is in the Knox County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Arrest made in Wednesday night shooting

Chattanooga police officers arrested a 22-year-old man in connection with a shooting Wednesday night that injured another man.

Kevin Tucker is charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony, felony reckless endangerment and vandalism.

Officers responded to a shooting about 9:20 p.m. at 2033 Emma Kate Drive, where they found the victim, 33-year-old Shannon Vinson, suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. Vinson was taken to a local hospital for treatment of an injury that was not life-threatening.
