White nationalist on the run after shooting Tennessee cop

Police officials asking for help finding man accused of shooting an officer

On January 11, a Knoxville police officer initiated a traffic stop on Wilson's auto.

On Friday, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation added Wilson to its Top 10 Most Wanted List, and is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to his capture.

"What the community should know is that this individual is armed and risky", Knoxville Police Chief David B. Rausch told reporters Thursday night.

Investigators recovered the suspect's vehicle early Friday.

Williams, a 14-year veteran of the Knoxville Police Department was shot in the shoulder during the traffic stop and is expected to make a full recovery, Rausch said.

It's unclear if he was the only person in the vehicle during the attempted traffic stop.

Let law enforcement handle this, ' Chief Rausch said, according to WKYC.


Rausch said Thursday night that he didn't know if Wilson was the only person in the auto at the time of the shooting.

The father of the man on the run Friday after being accused of shooting a Knoxville police officer is asking him to turn himself in.

"If he is going to take a shot at an officer, he won't hesitate to shoot at anyone else", Rausch told reporters. He has a history of violence and considered risky.

Wilson is listed in a database an Aryan Nations gang member.

According to the Anti-Defamation League's website, that Celtic cross image is the main symbol for the Aryan Nations, described as "the largest white supremacist prison gang in Tennessee". He was given a three-year prison sentence after he was convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011.

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