TELLICO PLAINS (WATE) - A man was shot and wounded Wednesday morning at his home in Tellico Plains.

Richard Jason Walker, 34, was shot in the abdomen at 912 Belltown Road at 7:20 a.m.

Walker told Monroe County sheriff's investigators a woman knocked on his door and when he opened it, she shot him. He says he doesn't know her.

The woman got into a black Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with a red fender. A man was in the truck.

Walker called 911. Deputies say they found him driving his car, and they aren't sure if he was trying to get help or what he was doing.

Walker was flown to UT Medical Center where he's being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
