Kingsport police: Questions remain unanswered after shooting on East Stone Drive


KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) –  Kingsport detectives are still sorting through witness statements after a shooting over the weekend.

The Kingsport Police Department says a man was taken to an area hospital following a shooting near Regions Bank and Buffalo Wild Wings on East Stone Drive Saturday night.

Officers say they were called about the shooting on East Stone Drive just before 8:30 p.m.

According to KPD, many “critical questions” remain unanswered.

“Detectives are continuing to sort through evidence and numerous conflicting witness statements in an attempt to determine what exactly transpired the night of the shooting. Unfortunately, publicly releasing any additional information at this point would only serve to further cloud the investigation,” said KPD in a release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111. Click here if you’d like to leave an anonymous tip. Copyright 2016 WJHL. All rights reserved.
