On January 11, a Knoxville police officer initiated a traffic stop on Wilson's auto.

Authorities say Ronnie Lucas Wilson shot officer Jay Williams in front of a Target store around 8:30 p.m.as the policeman attempted to stop Wilson for speeding.

He was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's top 10 most wanted fugitives list shortly before 10am. Rausch said the officer did not fire his weapon.

The search continued after shooting suspect Ronnie Wilson's vehicle was found on the corner of Jim Wolfe Road and Emory Road in the Corryton area Friday.

Police Officer Jay William was shot during a traffic stop, January 11, 2018.

Police are seeking an attempted murder warrant against Wilson in the shooting of Williams, Rausch said.

"If he is going to take a shot at an officer, he won't hesitate to shoot at anyone else", Rausch cautioned.

Rausch said that enforcement agencies across the state are "very familiar" with Wilson.

Rausch said Thursday night that he didn't know if Wilson was the only person in the auto at the time of the shooting. He is considered to be armed and risky. So we ask that folks if you see the vehicle, if you know this individual, then do not intervene.

Williams was transported to UT Medical Center to treat a gunshot wound to the shoulder, where he was later released Friday morning.

An East Tennessee man is at large after shooting at a police officer. His Facebook pictures show he has a tattoo of a swastika and another which bears the words "White Pride Worldwide".

The Knoxville Police Department said that Ronnie Wilson is associated with the Aryan Nation gang. He was sentenced to three years in state prison after being convicted of aggravated burglary in 2011, the outlet said.
