1 dead, 1 injured in Knoxville shooting

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – One person died and another was injured after a shooting in Knoxville Saturday afternoon on Meadow View Road.

Investigators believe a vehicle pulled up beside an Audi A6 and multiple shots were fired.

The driver of the Audi, Jerome Locke, was shot. He inadvertently accelerated the vehicle down a hill and it crashed into a tree. He died in the crash.

The passenger, Danielle Harris, was extricated from the vehicle. She was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators believe the other vehicle fled the scene before police arrived.

Neighbors tell WATE 6 On Your Side that this kind of crime is not usual for the neighborhood.

Meadow View Neighborhood Watch Vice President Shirley Kershaw says she’s lived in the neighborhood for over 40 years and hasn’t seen something like this.

“I hope that it would bring us closer cause things happen. Don’t never say that it won’t happen in my neighborhood, cause you don’t know. I didn’t think that this would happen in our neighborhood today, but it did.” said Kershaw.
