Local News

Three people have been charged with attempted murder after an investigation into a shooting in Powell.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shooting at Heiskell Road at Gardner Lane around 5:30 p.m. Monday. Investigators say just before the shooting, two men, later identified as Noah Priester and Nicholas England, tried to be picked up by the driver of the vehicle, Kayelin Martin, on Gardner Lane in an effort to elude law enforcement. 

According to the arrest report, Priester and England got out of the vehicle on Heiskell Road and shot multiple times into the windshield of the victim’s vehicle.

Priester ran off. England tried to hide the firearm used in the shooting and get picked up by Martin in an effort to elude law enforcement. 

The victim was located a short time later and cooperated with the investigation. 

Noah Priester, 18, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and employing a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony. His bond was set at a combined $120,000.

Nicholas England, 20, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and facilitation and was given a $65,000 bond. 

Kayelin Martin, 18, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, facilitation, and simple possession of marijuana. Her combined bond was set at $65,750 bond. 

A juvenile was cited and released. More charges are pending against possibly all three named defendants in this matter.
