White nationalist on the run after shooting Tennessee cop

Ronnie Lucas Wilson opened fire on Knoxville Officer David Williams as the cop attempted to stop him for speeding, according to Police Chief David Rausch. The officer injured, Officer Jay Williams, was hit in the shoulder but he is out of the hospital. Police said information was developed in the investigation that indicated Kristin Denise King may be in danger.

Officer Jay Williams was in the middle of a traffic stop when police say Wilson fired his weapon from inside his vehicle.

It is not clear if the gunman was the only person in the auto during the attempted traffic stop.

Law enforcement agencies across the state are still searching for Wilson. He then stopped the auto, got out and fired "multiple rounds" before driving away, Rausch said. Wilson is wanted by Knoxville Police Department and TBI to face a charge of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer.

On Friday afternoon, KPD said investigators needed help finding an endangered female in the company of Wilson.

A man listed in a database as an Aryan Nations gang member shot an officer and is on the run, police in Tennessee said. He was given a three-year prison sentence after he was convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011. He also posted in October 2017 the two photos - of himself and the Nova - that KPD released Thursday night.

Wilson is a member of Aryan Nations, a White supremacist gang in Tennessee.

"It borrows its name from the older neo-Nazi group of the same name but is a completely separate group", according to the ADL.

Wilson attended Gibbs High School in Corryton, according to his Facebook page. "So when they go out into the exercise yard, they take off their shirt, then it's readily apparent who they belong to, what their rank is in the gang, and then that status that they're looking for".
