SURGOINSVILLE — A man remained in serious but stable condition as of Monday morning following a shooting incident last week in Surgoinsville.
Hawkins Co. Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said that his office responded about 9:36 p.m. on June 13, 2019, to a location on Cobb Road in reference to a call about a possible shooting.
“Upon arrival, Sheriff’s Deputies came into contact with a male subject that had sustained multiple gunshot wounds,” Lawson said. “The victim was transported by Hawkins County E.M.S. to Ballad Holston Valley Hospital and is currently listed in serious, but stable condition.”
According to Lawson, two other males who were involved in the incident were detained at the scene.
“Later, after being interviewed by Sheriff’s Detectives, both males were released from custody,” he said. “Due to the nature of this ongoing and active investigation, no further details will be released.”
The sheriff said that it has been determined that “there is no current threat to the community in which the incident occurred”.
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office are being assisted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
