    "Picture perfect" weather expected for Easter Sunday

    Today’s forecast is just about “picture perfect”. We will see plenty of sunshine, light wind, low relative humidity values and highs right about where we should be for this time of year, so please enjoy it! The area of high pressure giving us this nice day will slowly drift eastward on Monday, but we should still see a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the low-mid 70s. It doesn’t last though as a cold front pushes into the area on Tuesday producing widespread showers and even a few thunder...More >>

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.
