Suspects sought after Monday night shooting at Miller Village Apartments in Kingsport


KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) — Kingsport police are looking for two suspects after a shooting Monday night at Miller Village Apartments.

According to the Kingsport Police Department, Darius Woodbury, 26, and Curtis Thompson, 25, both of Kingsport, exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of the apartment complex.

Thompson was shot in the leg, but police believe his injuries were non-life-threatening.

No one else was hurt in the shooting, but police say a stray bullet shattered an apartment window, went through a television, and lodged in an interior wall. The apartment belonged to someone uninvolved in the shooting.

“Fortunately, no innocent bystanders sustained injury,” the police department stated in a release.

Police say the two suspects knew each other prior to the shooting.

Woodbury has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon while Thompson has been charged with felony reckless endangerment.

Both suspects remain at large and should be considered “armed and dangerous,” according to police.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call KPD detectives at 423-229-9429 or Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
