All applicants must be a United States citizen and either already be at least 21 years of age or be turning 21 by no later than July 26, 2021.

Applicants will be divided alphabetically and will be assigned one of these two dates and will be notified accordingly. These sessions will be conducted at Domtar Park, located at 1414 Riverport Road in Kingsport.

The physical agility evaluation will consist of a timed one-mile run and a timed roughly one-quarter-mile obstacle course designed to measure fitness, strength, agility, and endurance as related to the duties of a Police Officer. Individuals must have an application on file and sign a waiver of liability in order to be eligible to participate.

The applications of those candidates who successfully pass the physical agility evaluation will be reviewed for eligibility and suitability to move forward to the interview panel phase. General criteria to be considered for selection for an interview will be outlined in the confirmation email and letter each applicant will receive to notify them of their testing date.

Those applicants with the highest combined scores on the physical agility evaluation and interview panel will then be interviewed by the Chief of Police to determine the final selections.

KPD e-News Release: Suspect in Custody in Series of Related Felonies Committed in Lynn Garden Community (Updated with 28 New Charges)

Kingsport Police Department

David Quillin, Chief of Police

http://Police.KingsportTN.govwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Suspect in Custody in Series of Related Felonies Committed in Lynn Garden Community (Updated with 28 New Charges)
DATE: December 16, 2020
CASE #: Multiple
GENERAL NARRATIVE
Update: The series of related felonies committed along Lynn Garden Drive on December 7, 2020 have been under constant investigation by Kingsport Police Detectives since the events occurred. The lone suspect responsible, Michael J Shelton, has remained incarcerated in the Sullivan County Jail in lieu of a $1,000,000 bond.

At the time of his arrest, Mr. Shelton was initially charged with Aggravated Robbery, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, all of which were specifically related to a home-invasion on Clark Avenue.

On December 16, 2020 the findings of this continuing investigation into the entire series of events were presented to the Sullivan County Grand Jury which returned a true bill on a 28-count indictment with the following additional charges:

1) First Degree Murder

2) Felony Murder

3) Attempt to Commit First Degree Murder (2 counts)

4) Especially Aggravated Robbery

5) Employing a Firearm During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony (3 counts)

6) Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony (3 counts)

7) Especially Aggravated Kidnapping (2 counts)

8) Burglary (2 counts)

9) Felony Reckless Endangerment (2 counts)

10) Aggravated Robbery

11) Aggravated Assault (4 counts)

12) Vandalism (6 counts)

To reiterate, these 28 new criminal counts are in addition to the four felonies that Mr. Shelton was already charged with at the time of his arrest. He will be served with these new charges while already in custody.

As this remains an active investigation, and in the interest of future prosecution, absolutely no further information can or will be released at this time.

As previously released:

Update: On the morning of December 7, 2020, at approximately 9:30 AM, Kingsport Police Department Patrol Officers and Detectives began responding to what turned out to be a series of connected felonious crimes committed in the Lynn Garden Community of Kingsport. Based upon the investigation thus far, a sole individual is believed to be responsible for all of these events.

While several different incidents were reported along Lynn Garden Drive and adjacent streets, one of the earliest crimes in the series occurred in the 100 block of Clark Avenue where the suspect committed a home-invasion of an occupied private residence. During a later incident at a separate location, the suspect shot and killed Gary D. McMeans.

The lone suspect, now identified as Michael J. Shelton, is in police custody. As of the time of issuance of this release, he remains incarcerated in the Kingsport City Jail, pending arraignment, in lieu of a $1,000,000 bond. As such, there is no reason to believe that there is any further danger to the public at this time.

Mr. Shelton has been initially charged with Aggravated Robbery, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, all of which are specifically related to the home-invasion on Clark Avenue.

Additional charges for the remaining incidents, including those related to the death of Mr. McMeans, are still pending the outcome of the entirety of the investigation.

As this remains a very extensive, active, and ongoing investigation, involving multiple crime scenes, with additional charges pending, and in the interest of future prosecution, absolutely no further information can or will be released at this time.

As previously released:

On the morning of December 7, 2020, at approximately 9:30 AM, Kingsport Police Department Patrol Officers and Detectives responded to what has turned out to be a series of related felonious crimes committed in the Lynn Garden Community of Kingsport. One of these incidents resulted in a shooting.

The sole individual believed to be responsible for all of these incidents, including the shooting, is now in police custody. As such, there is no reason to believe that there is any further danger to the public at this time.

This is currently, and will continue to be for some time, a very extensive, active, and ongoing investigation; therefore, no further details are available for release at this time. Additional information will be shared as it develops, but only at an appropriate point in the investigation.

Media inquiries should be directed to the Office of the K.P.D. Public Information Officer at 423-229-9433 or ThomasMPatton.

http://Police.KingsportTN.govwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Increases Impaired-Driving Enforcement During Holiday Season
DATE: December 16, 2020
GENERAL NARRATIVE
The Kingsport Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to increase impaired-driving enforcement from December 18, 2020 to January 1, 2021, surrounding the holiday season. The THSO’s statewide Booze It and Lose It campaign is part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over nationwide mobilization.

Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of drunk driving, coupled with increased sobriety checkpoints and high visibility enforcement, aim to drastically reduce the number of drunk-driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities this year.

“We ask all Tennesseans to please drive safely this holiday season,” said THSO Director Buddy Lewis. “Our state and local law enforcement partners will be out in full force to secure Tennessee roadways. We want everyone to make it home safely, so please designate a sober driver.”

The consequences of a single DUI conviction for a first-time offender in the state of Tennessee may include costly fines, court costs, legal fees, jail time, mandatory drug and alcohol treatment, and/or the installation of an ignition interlock device in his/her vehicle.

The THSO provides grant funding to support the Kingsport Police Department’s increased enforcement efforts during the Booze It and Lose It holiday campaign. For more information about the THSO, please visit www.tntrafficsafety.org.

GENERAL NARRATIVE
On December 9, 2020 at approximately 3:00 PM, Michael Cody Vermillion was arrested at his residence, located at 3836 Eastline Drive, Miller Village Apartments #84 in Kingsport, by Kingsport Police Department Patrol Officers on an outstanding warrant for 8 counts each of Stalking and Harassment.

This arrest warrant stemmed from a recent Grand Jury indictment following a lengthy investigation by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division. No less than eight female victims had reported similar events taking place over the past several months where they were the recipients of communications from Mr. Vermillion.

The victims stated that Mr. Vermillion had repeatedly contacted them on Social Media utilizing multiple fabricated Instagram accounts and/or called or texted them from several different telephone numbers created via a fictitious telephone number generating application.

In the series of unsolicited correspondence, Mr. Vermillion made a variety of inappropriate and offensive comments that made his victims feel extremely uncomfortable and ultimately put them in fear for their own personal safety.

Following his arrest, Mr. Vermillion was booked into the Kingsport City Jail. He was later transferred to the Sullivan County Jail in Blountville; however, he has since been released after posting a $7,500 bond.
