Update: The July 5, 2021 shots fired incident at Miller Village Apartments has been under constant investigation by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division since the time it occurred. The findings thus far are as follows:

Shortly before midnight, two suspects, now identified as Darius Woodbury and Curtis Thompson, exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of the apartment complex. The suspects were already known to one another prior to the altercation. During the incident, Mr. Thompson sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg.

Also during the incident, a stray bullet shattered the window of an apartment leased to, and occupied by, an uninvolved person. The projectile entered the apartment, went through a television, and lodged in an interior wall. Fortunately, no innocent bystanders sustained injury.

On July 7, 2021 Detectives obtained warrants charging both suspects for their roles in the incident. Mr. Woodbury has been charged with Aggravated Assault (3 counts) and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Mr. Thompson has been charged with Felony Reckless Endangerment.

KPD e-News Release: K.P.D. to Begin Limited Staffing of Lynn Garden Police Substation

Kingsport Police Department

Dale Phipps, Chief of Police

200 Shelby Street • Kingsport, TN 37660

http://KingsportTN.gov/City-Services/Police-Departmentwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. to Begin Limited Staffing of Lynn Garden Police Substation
DATE: July 12, 2021
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Effective immediately, the Kingsport Police Department will begin limited staffing of the Lynn Garden Police Substation on two days each week during specified hours. K.P.D.’s Lynn Garden Police Substation is located along the right side of K.F.D. Fire Station #5, located at 1517 Lynn Garden Drive in Kingsport. While there has been a Police substation at this location for decades, this is the first time that it will be open to the public.

The hours of operation will be on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:00AM – 12:00 Noon and Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 3:00PM – 5:00PM. Meanwhile, the Substation itself has undergone a facelift to include new signage to help with visibility. The word “POLICE” has been added to the marquee adjacent to the road, and new signs have also been added on the door and near the entrance to include the new hours.

“Our decision to begin staffing this Substation comes as a result of increased community concerns and our own observations regarding a high volume of police calls for service in this specific part of the city,” said Chief of Police Dale Phipps. “Our hope is that an increase in Police visibility in this particular area will serve as a crime deterrent and help reduce the high demand for police resources, while at the same time help the residents of the Lynn Garden Community feel a little bit safer.”

The concept of the Lynn Garden Police Substation is for it to serve as a “Community Listening Post.” During the aforementioned hours of operation, the Substation will be staffed by a Patrol Watch Commander or other Police Department Supervisor, who will be available to take “walk-in” reports as well as listen to and help address complaints and concerns expressed by citizens of the Lynn Garden Community.

While K.P.D. will maintain limited hours of operation at the Lynn Garden Police Substation, citizens can rest assured that the Police are still available to respond to their needs 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week, 365 days-a-year. Citizens can always feel free to come to the Justice Center, located at 200 Shelby Street in Downtown Kingsport, or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111 (or 911 if an emergency) if they are ever in need of Police assistance.

As indicated on one of the signs, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office will also have access to this Police Substation. Should a need arise for a S.C.S.O. Deputy or Supervisor to meet with a citizen in this part of Sullivan County, this could be accomplished at this location. Any inquiries involving the S.C.S.O. should be directed to that agency.

Additional Police Substations are located at K.F.D. Fire Stations #6 (Colonial Heights), #7 (Rock Springs), and #8 (New Beason Well Road just off East Stone Drive); however, none of those Substations are currently open to the public. If this investment in the Lynn Garden Community proves successful, and overall Police Department staffing levels improve, K.P.D. will be open to considering opening of some of these other Police Substations to the public in the future.

http://KingsportTN.gov/City-Services/Police-Departmentwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Suspect Identity Sought in Motor Vehicle Theft and Subsequent Credit Card Fraud
DATE: July 8, 2021
CASE #: 21-011346 (Motor Vehicle Theft)

21-013477 (Credit Card Fraud/Walmart)

21-013478 (Credit Card Fraud/Sonic)

GENERAL NARRATIVE
On June 2, 2021, between the hours of 12:00 Noon and 4:30 PM, a silver Ford 500 sedan was stolen from a parking lot, located in the 1600 block of East Stone Drive in Kingsport, while the owner was at work at an adjacent business. Also stolen along with the vehicle was the owner’s purse which contained, among other things, her credit card.

The car was recovered the next day, parked at the Westside Inn, located at 1017 West Stone Drive; however, on the same day that the vehicle was taken, the stolen credit card was used to make two fraudulent purchases. One of these was for $273.75 at Walmart, located at 3200 Fort Henry Drive, and the other for $19.44 at Sonic, located at 3845 Fort Henry Drive.

The suspect was captured on surveillance video during the Walmart incident. A photo taken from that footage has been included in this release. The suspect appears to have a bandage on his left calf which might help identify him. Anyone who recognizes him is asked to contact the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:

https://www.kingsporttn.gov/city-services/police-department/contact-us

In this incident, the vehicle had been left unlocked and unattended for several hours, and valuables as well as a spare key to the vehicle had been left inside it unsecured.

The occurrence of the crimes of Motor Vehicle Theft and Auto Burglary can easily be lessened or even prevented altogether by utilizing the following common sense measures:

1) Never leave your vehicle unlocked while unattended.

2) Never leave the key inside your parked and unoccupied vehicle.

3) Never leave your car key in any unsecure location.

4) Never leave your vehicle running unless you are actually in it.

5) Never leave items of real or perceived value in plain sight inside your vehicle.

Following these simple steps will go a long way toward deterring these crimes in our city, and reducing your chances of becoming the next victim of the crimes of Motor Vehicle Theft or Auto Burglary.

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Armed Suspect at West Side Inn Leads to Officer Involved Shooting (Update)
DATE: July 1, 2021
CASE #: 21-013540
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Update: As already released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the suspect in this morning’s officer involved shooting incident at West Side Inn in Kingsport has succumbed to her injuries and died. She is identified as Lisa A. Short.

As is standard operating procedure in situations such as this, the Officers directly involved have been granted paid administrative leave.

This remains an active investigation by an outside agency; therefore, no additional details can or will be released at this time.

As previously released:

On July 1, 2021 at approximately 5:20 AM, Kingsport Central Dispatch received a call for help from a resident of West Side Inn, located at 1017 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. The complainant stated that a white female suspect was banging on his door and was armed with a firearm. Multiple K.P.D. Patrol Officers responded to the scene.

Upon their arrival, the Officers encountered the suspect in question who was armed with a pistol and presenting a clear and present threat to the Officers and others in close proximity. After numerous commands to the suspect for her to drop her weapon which went unheeded, the Officers were left with no choice but to neutralize the threat for their own safety and the safety of others.

An Officer discharged an issued firearm, striking the suspect. The suspect has been transported to an area medical facility for treatment. Her current condition is unknown. Fortunately, no Officers or innocent citizens were injured during this incident.

As is protocol in Officer involved shootings, and in the interest of complete transparency with the public, the Kingsport Police Department has contacted the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) with a request for them to conduct an independent investigation into this incident.

As this is now an active investigation by an outside agency, no additional details can or will be released at this time.

KPD e-News Release: Motorcyclist Killed in North John B. Dennis Highway Motor Vehicle Collision

http://KingsportTN.gov/City-Services/Police-Departmentwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Motorcyclist Killed in North John B. Dennis Highway Motor Vehicle Collision
DATE: June 30, 2021
CASE #: 21-013510
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On June 30, 2021 at approximately 6:00 PM, Crash Reconstructionists with the Kingsport Police Department Traffic Unit were called to the scene of a motor vehicle collision in the 2600 block of North John B. Dennis Highway in Kingsport. Their subsequent investigation revealed the following:

A blue 2004 Yamaha sport-type motorcycle, operated and solely ridden by John W. Williams, was southbound on North John B. Dennis Highway when it crashed into the driver’s side of a white 2018 Chevrolet Express work van, occupied by driver, David J. Helton, and passenger, Jeffery C. Wolfe.

Mr. Williams was killed in the crash. Neither Mr. Helton nor Mr. Wolfe sustained injuries.

When the collision occurred, the van was exiting a private parking lot and crossing southbound traffic in order to complete a left turn to northbound North John B. Dennis Highway. While the van did in fact pull into the path of the motorcycle, other contributing factors are believed to be involved.

Based upon multiple eyewitness statements and evidence recovered at the scene, investigators have reason to believe that excessive speed on the part of the motorcycle played a significant role in the crash.

The southbound lanes of North John B. Dennis Highway remained closed for three and a half hours to allow for a thorough and safe investigation and removal of the vehicles involved. The scene has since been cleared, and normal traffic patterns have resumed.

This crash remains under open and active investigation by the K.P.D. Traffic Unit. As such, no further details are available for release at this time.
