The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting that happened around 12:30 a.m. Sunday on Edenbridge Way. KCSO reported one person was killed and another was injured.

“I was sitting in my living room with my friend and we heard a series of loud pops in a row that were pretty clearly gun shots but you never know,” neighbor Persephone Webb said. “It could have been fireworks or something. I immediately put my shoes and coat on and ran outside and there were people scrambling everywhere out here. Lots of shouting, people distraught, screaming, crying.”
