KPD e-News Release: Suspect in Custody in Multi-Agency Stolen Vehicle/Felony Hit and Run Incident that left K.P.D. Officer Injured

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Suspect in Custody in Multi-Jurisdictional Stolen Vehicle/Felony Hit and Run Incident that left K.P.D. Officer Injured
DATE: August 27, 2018
CASE #: 18-024613
GENERAL NARRATIVE
A suspect is now in custody in a multi-jurisdictional stolen vehicle/felony hit and run incident that left a Kingsport Police Officer injured.

On August 27, 2018 at approximately 10:30 AM, several Kingsport Police Patrol Officers were traveling toward, and almost to, a residence in the Lynn Garden area of Kingsport to check for a white 2011 Range Rover sport utility vehicle that had been reported stolen in Johnson City.

While en route, they spotted the stolen vehicle in question leaving the area, and a traffic stop was initiated. As one of the officers was exiting his police cruiser, the suspect, later identified as Shannon Michael Carter, put the vehicle in reverse, and deliberately accelerated toward the officer, striking him and pinning him between the two vehicles. He then fled the scene of the crash in the vehicle.

Some officers remained at the scene to render aid to the injured officer; however, additional officers were able to give chase. After a lengthy pursuit throughout the Lynn Garden and Clouds Ford areas, officers temporarily lost contact with him near the intersection of Clouds Ford Road at Duke Street.

Shortly thereafter, Kingsport Central Dispatch received information that the stolen Range Rover had been spotted near Volunteer High School in Hawkins County where it had crashed. Mr. Carter fled the scene of the crash; however, after an extensive search of the area he was ultimately apprehended.

He was transported to the Kingsport City Jail and initially charged with 1) Possession of Stolen Property over $10,000, 2) Felony Evading Arrest, 3) Reckless Driving, 4) Alteration of a License Plate, 5) No Driver License, and 6) Fugitive from Justice. He remains confined pending arraignment. He was also wanted on 16 preexisting active/outstanding felony warrants out of Braselton, GA (Jackson County) to include offenses similar to the ones he committed here today.

Additional felony charges are pending by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and will be announced in a follow-up news release to be issued by that agency. There are also possible additional charges pending related to the initial theft of the motor vehicle in Johnson City and his ultimate apprehension in Hawkins County.

The injured Kingsport Police Officer was transported to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment. He was initially awake and alert and listed in stable condition; however, he was eventually treated and released.

The Kingsport Police Department would like to thank all area first responders, especially the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office, who were involved with this incident in any capacity, whether rendering aid to our injured officer or helping apprehend the man who injured him. Your assistance was, and always is, appreciated.

As this remains an active and ongoing investigation, no further details will be released at this time. Inquiries regarding the initial motor vehicle theft in Johnson City or the final motor vehicle collision in Hawkins County will be referred to law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions.
