A confirmed member of the Aryan Nations white supremacist group who was wanted in connection with the shooting of a Tennessee police officer was captured early Saturday morning, police said.
Ronnie Lucas Wilson was put on Tennessee’s Top 10 Most Wanted list on Friday after authorities identified him as the suspect who opened fire and wounded a veteran Knoxville police officer during a traffic stop Thursday evening. He was found in an abandoned residence in neighboring Blount County, authorities said.
“CAPTURED! Wilson was just now located in Blount County,” tweeted the Knoxville Police Department at 3:37 a.m. Saturday.
Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said in a statement later Saturday morning, “Wilson is receiving treatment at a local hospital for injuries he sustained when he jumped out of a window of the residence.”
Kristin Denise King, 31, was also found with Wilson in the house. Blount County Fire Department
