KPD: Man with warrant out for Knox Co. murder killed in Monday shooting

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — UPDATE (May 4, 2021): The Knoxville Police Department identified the victim of Monday's deadly shooting at the 400 block of S. Hembree Street, saying the victim had an active warrant for murder.

KPD said Bolden was wanted for second-degree murder in Knox County in the shooting death of Lemuel Appling on October 28, 2020 in the 2900 block of Hillside Avenue. Appling was from Detroit, Michigan, and police said Bolden shot him after an argument.

KPD said no suspects have been identified in Bolden's death yet.

When officers arrived to the scene Monday, which is near Austin-East High School, they said they found a man outside of a residence suffering from at least one gunshot wound. 

Bolden was transported to the UT Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased. 

Violent Crimes Unit investigators responded to the scene to begin the investigation.

DA: Man charged for selling gun to teen killed at Knoxville high school

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Knox County District Attorney’s Office has announced charges against a 21-year-old man who they say sold a gun to Anthony Thompson Jr., who was shot and killed by police at an area high school in April.

The DA said Kelvon Foster is charged with providing handguns to juveniles. He’s also facing federal charges of making false or fictitious statements in connection with the purchase of a firearm.

According to the DA’s office, Foster met the 17-year-old at Harvey’s Pistol & Pawn on April 5 and bought a 9mm handgun. He’s accused of meeting Thompson Jr. later that day and then selling him the gun for cash and marijuana.

Investigators say Foster admitted to buying and then selling the gun to Thompson Jr., whom he’d known for several years. They said two more guns were recovered from Foster during the investigation.

Back in April, Knoxville police said officers responded to a report of a student possibly armed with a gun at Austin-East Magnet High School. They found Thompson Jr. in a bathroom. That's when he and officers got into a struggle and shots were fired.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Thompson Jr. fired once and the officers fired twice. The bullet that hit Officer Adam Wilson was not fired from the student's gun, according to the TBI press release.

A week after the shooting, Knox County DA Charme Allen announced that no charges would be filed against the officers, saying the incident was ruled as a justifiable shooting.

TBI identifies Knoxville man shot, killed by KPD special operations after he pointed a gun at officers

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Knoxville Police Department said a man is dead after special operations officers shot and killed him after he pointed a gun at them while serving a warrant in South Knoxville.

On Tuesday night, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation identified the man who was shot and killed as 43-year-old Bryan Calvin Lee. 

According to KPD, it happened at 2962 Sevier Avenue just before noon near Knoxville Fire Station No. 10.

KPD said its Special Operations Squad arrived to serve a search warrant at the home when they encountered an armed man.

Police said the man pointed a gun at officers, and an exchange of gunfire followed. The man was hit by gunfire at least once.

Police said they tried to render emergency aid to the man, but said the efforts were unsuccessful and the man died. No officers were hit by gunfire or hurt in the incident.

KPD released the name of the officers involved in the shooting. They have been identified as Lieutenant Shane Watson, Sergeant Chris Hutton, Officer James Hunley, and Officer Carl Kennedy. 

Per standard protocol, the officers have been placed on administrative leave pending the TBI investigation, KPD said.

According to a press release, Watson has been with the KPD since 2002, Hutton has been with the department since 2011, Hunley has been with the KPD since 2007, and Kennedy has been with the department since 2009. 

All four are currently assigned to patrol in the West District, KPD said.

KPD said Knox County District Attorney General Charme Allen's office called the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The TBI said it is leading the investigation into the shooting and is not identifying any officers involved, which is standard procedure. According to the TBI, KPD was assisting agents with its Drug Investigation Division and the 5th Judicial Drug Task Force with an investigation by executing the search warrant. 

The TBI said the details of how the situation escalated are being investigated.

Knoxville Fire Department Captain D.J. Corcoran said crews at the neighboring fire station also responded to the shooting, saying they are ok.

Neighbors said they're used to seeing walkers and bikers along their street, but not officers with guns.

The warrant that officers went to serve was regarding a drug investigation. The TBI said it stretched across several different jurisdictions. But neighbors said they are surprised to learn the people who live in the home had anything to do with it.

"I told her to deadbolt the locks! The SWAT team, everybody's running around here like something crazy," said Susan Hurst, who lives in the area. "I'm very surprised. Very, very surprised because, I mean, it's really floored me.”

It was a Tuesday they said they weren't prepared for. 

"My adrenalin shot up immediately,” neighbor Lyn Grant said. "I saw a SWAT team get out of their car, about eight guys wearing camouflage with military behind one another and I heard, I thought it was gunfire at first."

Neighbors said the shooting death comes as a shock. Susan Hurst and Violet Strawn say they know the family who lives there and the man who was taken down

 "He's all the time outsides doing stuff with his kids in the yard," Hurst said.

"Yeah, I mean they've been living there forever. They've got two dogs chained up in the back," Grant said.

While gathering evidence, the TBI removed several large guns from the home. Some people said they are starting to think they may not have known their neighbors as well as they thought.

"I don’t know. I mean, if a criminal lived there, I mean I guess I feel safer, you know?" Grant said.

While others don’t believe their neighbors could be involved.

"I feel like I know my neighbors, I really do. I just feel like there's more to the story," Hurst said.

The Knoxville Police Department also said that members of the team did not wear body cameras during the incident. A spokesperson said their current policy does not explicitly say that Special Operations Squad members are required to wear body cameras and haven't worn them.

However, they also said that the policy does not necessarily exempt them from wearing body cameras. Officials said earlier that patrol officers were issued body cameras, but information about whether that included members of the Special Operations Squad was not immediately available.

The full statement is available below:

The officers involved in yesterday’s incident were not wearing body cameras. Our current policy does not explicitly state that Special Operations Squad members are required to wear body cameras and, up to this point, SOS members involved in tactical operations have not worn body cameras. However, the policy does not necessarily exempt SOS team members from wearing body cameras. With that and in light of yesterday’s events, we are ensuring that SOS officers, the members of other specialized units and their supervisors understand that officers who have been issued body cameras are required to wear them while acting in those capacities. We are also actively reviewing our policy to make certain that expectation is clear and there is no room for interpretation.

KPD added that "around 90 percent of current KPD officers have been issued body cameras. Per KPD policy, body worn cameras have been assigned to all officers who are assigned to Patrol and engage in routine patrol or call response assignments, as well as additional officers whose operational assignment would benefit from the use of a body worn camera. Our intention is that video equipment monitors all contacts with a person in the community in all situations possible. That is why we are reviewing our policy and internal communications to make sure that it is explicitly clear that all officers who have been issued body cameras are required to wear them while acting in those capacities, including special operations."
