The rounds stuck Jordan Camp in the nose, face, neck, chest, hip, arm, and back. Eleven of the rounds were recovered.

Investigators say the June 20 standoff stemmed from a routine traffic stop.

Camp ran from deputies and ended up in a mobile home park on Canton Hollow Road, where a shootout ensued between Camp and a SWAT team after Camp allegedly pointed a rifle at officers.

Investigators say officers fired approximately 47 rounds.

Knox County Sgt. Mike Ledbetter was injured in the standoff.

An initial report showed that Sgt. Ledbetter may have been struck by a ricocheting round. Officials have not said if the bullet came from a gun fired by Camp or by other officers.

Ledbetter required four hours of emergency surgery. He has since returned to work on light duty.
